Yuvraj Singh diagnosed with cancer

Feb 5, 2012 9:34:17 AM - srilankamirror.com

(Srilankamirror) - Yuvraj Singh has been diagnosed with cancer and is currently undergoing chemotherapy in the United States.

A tumour on his lung was diagnosed as non-malignant late last year, but his physiotherapist has now confirmed that it is cancerous.

Dr Jatin Chaudhary said it was "100% curable" and that Yuvraj would be "fit to be back on the field" in May.

"It is a rare tumour and is cancerous but it has been detected in stage 1 itself (Stage 0 refers to cancer that is just beginning, while stages 1 to 4 are progressively more advanced cancers)," Chaudhary, also an accupuncture specialist, told PTI.
