After leukemia, it is prostate cancer that Ryan O'Neal has to battle out. As per the recent reports, it has been unveiled that the famous American actor, Ryan O'Neal has been diagnosed with a fourth stage prostate cancer.
The veteran actor who battled out for life with leukemia stated that it is was hard to hear the news that he was suffering from cancer, but at the same time, he felt he was very lucky as, the cancer had been detected at an early stage.
Moreover, he illustrated that, as per the reports, the doctors have asserted that he will recover fully very soon. He said, "I am deeply grateful for the support of my friends and family during this time, and I urge everyone to get regular check-ups, as early detection is the best defense against this horrible disease that has afflicted so many".
The findings regarding the actor have revealed that he was suffering from myelogenous leukemia, for which he was treated in the 1990s. It has been unveiled that the disease causes the bone marrow to produce more white blood cells.
It is hard time for the actor, as just three years back; he lost his longtime beloved Farrah Fawcett, who died of anal cancer at the age of 62. He has had many memoirs with his love, out of which he terms that the best was Both of Us coming out on May 1.
However, regarding his own treatment, he illustrated that he will have to undergo a combination of radiation therapy and hormone therapy. It has been discovered that the hormone therapy is necessary, so as to remove the male hormones that trigger the growth of prostate cancer.
However, it is being expected that the way Ryan O'Neal won his battle against leukemia, same way he will win his battle against prostate cancer.
