Biden health appears very good

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Joe Biden's health records show he appears in very good health with some of the routine issues of aging.

But there's no evidence that he has had a brain scan to completely rule out another aneurysm like the one that required emergency lifesaving surgery 20 years ago.

Reporters were reviewing the Democratic vice presidential candidate's medical records on Monday. They show no reason for concern about another aneurysm. He has no symptoms, is otherwise fit with healthy heart arteries, and is very active.

He does have an enlarged prostate like many other 65-year-old men. But there's no sign of prostate cancer.
