Sir Rod Stewart has revealed that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer three years ago but has won the battle against the disease.
The pop legend told The Mirror that he was diagnosed with the disease in February 2016 during a routine checkup.
Stewart revealed his prostate cancer during a fundraising evening with former Faces bandmates Kenney Jones and Ronnie Wood.
"No, it's not what you think. Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. No one knows this, but I thought it was about time I told everybody. I'm in the clear now, simply because I caught it early. I had so many tests," Stewart said.
Stewart encouraged everyone to be aware of prostate cancer and explained how an early diagnosis can prevent it from becoming fatal.
He added, "If you're positive, and you work through it and you keep a smile on your face... I've worked for two years and I've just been happy, and the good Lord looked after me."
Back in 2000, Stewart was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, which was also successfully treated.
