John Pedrozo said, like many men who have prostate cancer, he has never had any symptoms; but he decided to be tested after his brother was diagnosed with the disease.

Pedrozo said his prognosis is good because he caught the cancer early. Now he's encouraging other men of all ages to be tested.

Pedrozo is scheduled to have surgery in September and plans to stay in his position as Merced County Supervisor.
