Giuliani settles on method for his cancer treatment

SHARE Giuliani settles on method for his cancer treatment

NEW YORK — Mayor Rudolph Giuliani has settled on a treatment regimen for his prostate cancer. But that is all he wants to disclose for now about how he is trying to beat the disease.

The mayor, 56, dropped out of the U.S. Senate race in May after announcing that the early stage cancer had been diagnosed a month earlier. Later, he said he was starting a hormonal therapy that shrinks prostate cancer tumors. But his deliberations continued over whether to pick surgery or a radiation therapy as the primary treatment.

Asked Monday about his progress in settling on an approach, he said, "I have made up my mind, and I am doing what I am doing." But he declined to disclose which option he had picked and when — or even if — he expected he would have to miss work.
