STILLER RE­VEALS HE HAD PROSTATE CANCER

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

LOS ANGELES: Ac­tor Ben Stiller re­vealed yes­ter­day that he had been di­ag­nosed with prostate cancer two years ago and was suc­cess­fully treated. The 50-year-old told The Howard Stern Show that he was lucky to now be cancer free thanks to de­tec­tion through an early screen­ing test. Stiller said he was speak­ing pub­licly about it for the first time in the hope that men would get tested – through what is called a Prostate Spe­cific Anti­gen blood test – ear­lier than the stan­dard age of 50. – AFP
