Atlanta TV personality Clark Howard battles cancer

ATLANTA - Atlanta television personality Clark Howard has revealed that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Howard is a consumer adviser for WSB-TV Channel 2. The station on Wednesday said doctors first noticed that there might be a problem after a blood test during a routine exam two years ago. Since then, Howard's doctors have kept an eye on it.

Howard was diagnosed earlier this month. He said it is in its early stages and is treatable.

He said he's telling the public about his cancer because he wants to remind people, especially men, about the importance of paying attention to their health.
