Stephen Fry made a doozy of an announcement on Friday as he shared his prostate was removed after being diagnosed with prostate cancer.
The British comedian revealed that doctors discovered something was wrong just before Christmas when he was getting his flu shot.
After a routine physical revealed higher than average PSA levels, the 60-year-old underwent an MRI and transrectal biopsy before he was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma, a type of cancerous tumor — or, as Fry put it, “quite an aggressive little bugger.”
The actor’s prostate as well as 11 lymph nodes were taken out in the first week of January. To the doctors’ knowledge, the cancer has “all been got,” but Fry said they won’t know for sure until his PSA levels are checked.
Keeping you in our thoughts, Mr. Fry. Watch the video announcement (below) to hear more about his health battle.
