Stephen Fry announces cancer battle after being diagnosed with prostate cancer

Stephen Fry announces cancer battle after being diagnosed with prostate cancer

In early January Fry underwent surgery, which he said "went well", aimed at removing the "aggressive" cancerous tissue.

As far as he knows, the cancer "has all been got".

Stephen Fry has announced that he has prostate cancer in a video posted on his site.

He was diagnosed following a full health check-up by his doctor, whom he had booked an appointment with to receive a flu jab.

Fry said he is "feeling fit and well".

However, the next day the doctor called to discuss concerns he had about Fry's prostate specific antigen (PSA) levels, and suggested he undergo and MRI scan.

"If you're wondering why I've been out of the public eye - I'm sure you haven't - I wanted to recover out of the public eye".

Fry thanked his family, "darling, darling husband" and close friends for their support in recent weeks and for their help during his recovery from surgery, as well as praising his "wonderful" medical team.

"They took the prostate out", he said, adding that the cancer doesn't seem to have spread elsewhere.

The tweet linked to a YouTube video in which he told fans and friends that after seeing his doctor for a flu shot and a check-up late previous year, "he called me up and said, 'I'm a little anxious about your PSA levels'".

"Here's hoping I've got another few years left on this planet because I enjoy life at the moment and that's a marvellous thing to be able to say, and I'd rather it didn't go away", he added. "Cancer is something that happens to other people".

He also urges men to "get checked" for prostate cancer, before ending with a heartfelt final thought.

Fry, who has previously appeared on Irish soap opera Ros na Rún, said he life was saved by the early intervention.

"Cancer, in the end, it's just a word that rings in your head", he said.
