Rod Stewart Reveals Cancer Fight

Newser — Evann Gastaldo

Rod Stewart just revealed that he was diagnosed with cancer—but the diagnosis came in 2016, and this July he was given the all-clear, CNN reports. "Two years ago I was ­diagnosed with prostate cancer," the singer revealed at a fundraising event for the Prostate Project nonprofit Saturday in England, per the Guardian.

"I'm in the clear now, simply because I caught it early. ... I've worked for two years and I've just been happy, and the good Lord looked after me." He added, "No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody." Stewart, 74, also urged men to get themselves checked: "Finger up the bum, no harm done."
