Don Perata, a former California state Senate president who is running for mayor of Oakland, has been treated for prostate cancer, apparently successfully.

Perata got the diagnosis in May - about two weeks after the FBI finally cleared him in a 5-year corruption investigation.

"Trust me, the FBI was a lot tougher to handle with than this. At least with cancer I knew what I was dealing with," Perata said.
