Stephen Fry reveals prostate cancer diagnosis

After various tests, Fry revealed his prostate was removed and that last month he was told the cancer had not spread.

In the 12 minute video, the QI host explains that he initially went to see his doctor to get a flu jab, when they discovered unusually high levels of antigens in his prostate.

Fry had his prostate removed in January after being diagnosed in December, and said "it all seemed to go pretty well".

Doctors believe the cancer has "all been got", but Mr Fry says they can't be sure until his PSA levels are checked again - but for the moment he says he is "fit and well and happy".

"Yes, indeed, there is a cancer there", he said in the video.

Most men with early prostate cancer do not get symptoms, according to Prostate UK. 'Good heavens. You're not supposed to get cancer.' I know it's a cliche, but you don't think it's going to happen to you - cancer is something that happens to other people.

Stephen Fry has revealed he has prostate cancer, following an MRI scan.

The actor & comedian has gone public with his diagnosis, and urged men to get themselves checked.

If prostate cancer spreads to other parts of the body or breaks out of the prostate, symptoms can include back pain, hip pain or pelvis pain, problems getting or keeping an erection, blood in the urine or semen, and unexplained weight loss.

Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the United Kingdom, with over 40,000 new cases diagnosed every year, according to the NHS.
