Radio presenter Chris Evans has revealed he’s been diagnosed with skin cancer.
The broadcaster, 57, shared the news with his listeners during his Virgin Radio show on Monday morning.
Luckily, he confirmed that the cancer had been found in the early stages.
Chris also said he was hopeful for a full recovery with skin cancer being one of the more treatable forms of the illness.
He is set to undergo treatment next month.
Talking on his breakfast show, he explained: ‘We need to discuss what’s going on with this issue. It is a melanoma.
‘There’s this phrase called a malignant melanoma – you know once you get something and you find out all about it – that is a redundant phrase because if it is a melanoma, it is malignant.’
As per The Sun, he added: ‘But it’s been caught so early, just so you know, that it should be completely treatable.’
According to the broadcaster, that is set to happen ‘on the 14th of September’.
Chris previously had a skin cancer scare back in 2019 when he found worrying marks on his body.
He explained that the hot summer that year as well as ‘high levels of UV’ had raised concerns for him.
The expert doctor he saw told him at that time that he had ‘nothing to worry about’ but that he should have annual checks ‘just because of your complexion’.
