King Charles Diagnosed With Cancer.

King Charles has been diagnosed with cancer.

The 75-year-old monarch recently underwent a corrective procedure for an enlarged prostate and doctors noticed a “separate issue of concern” that has ultimately led to his cancer diagnosis.

The Buckingham Palace issued a statement that read, “During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted. Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer. His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake State business and official paperwork as usual.

“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure.”

The Palace further stated that, “He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible. His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and, in the hope, it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

Charles underwent treatment for an enlarged prostate in late January.
