It’s been reported that Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh has been diagnosed with grade 1 cancer.
Earlier, it had been revealed that the 30-year-old was suffering from a tumour in his lungs, and now it’s been confirmed that the growth is malignant.
Yuraj’s ailment was first misdiagnosed by an Indian hospital. Yuvraj is now being treated at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston, America.
The rare tumour, parts of which are just above the artery of Yuvraj’s heart, was detected in stage one itself. Chemotherapy sessions for Yuvi began after he reached the US on January 26, and he will not be requiring surgery.
The good news is that Yuvraj will be better soon. The cricketer’s physiotherapist Dr Jatin Chaudhary has clarified that the illness is curable and that Yuvraj is likely to be fit again by May 2012.
Yuvraj was Player of the Tournament in the World Cup in 2011, which India won, claiming 4 man of the match awards.
