Stephen Fry announces he's in recovery for prostate cancer

Beloved comedian and mental health activist Stephen Fry announced his battle with prostate cancer in a YouTube video posted earlier today.

A subsequent MRI scan revealed the presence of cancerous tissues in his prostate.

Initial results suggested the cancer hadn't spread yet, but doctors were concerned about the lymph nodes surrounding the prostate and offered two courses of action: radiotherapy or surgically removing the prostate.

He confirmed that the operation was a success, adding: "So far as we know, it's all been got". Ive got cancer, I kept saying to myself.?Good heavens.

"Some men in particular face a higher than average risk and so if you are over 50, black, or have a family history of prostate cancer, it's important that you speak to your GP about the disease".

'So, what next? Well you have to recover and that's what I've been doing in case you've been wondering why I've been out of the public eye - it's rather traumatic'.

Because of these factors, there is now no screening programme for prostate cancer here in Britain - so it's up to you to arrange tests, if you think you could be at risk. I wasn't being examined for anything as beastly as Satan, but something as beastly and it was in the prostate that they were looking at.

"But if theres anything left on the bed of the prostate where theyve taken it out, it may have spread and Ill have to get radiotherapy and the whole damn thing will start again".

Fry, who has suffered from depression in the past, said at the moment he was "fit and well and happy". He's a kind of cancer-y person I can see that now.' That's how one looks at people who have cancer.

Fry said his doctors believe the early intervention saved his life, and urged "men of a certain age" to get their PSA levels checked.
