CSU Athletic Director Paul Kowalczyk will undergo surgery for prostate cancer later this month after he was first diagnosed in a routine physical 13 months ago.
Doctors determined that he has a â€œlow-gradeâ€ form of the cancer, according to a Coloradoan article that ran on July 11.
In Kowalczykâ€™s first six-month test after diagnosis, his cancer showed no change. But in his second six-month surveillance test, the cancer had grown.
â€œGenerally speaking, itâ€™s still a low-grade cancer, and Iâ€™m young enough, and weâ€™ve caught it early enough, that there should not be any problem,â€ Kowalczyk told the Coloradoan. â€œYou never know, of course, but the prognosis at this point looks good.â€
Kowalczyk will have surgery on July 22.
