Stephen Fry Reveals Battle with Cancer in Online Video

"Cancer is a word that rings in your head: "Good heavens Stephen, you're not supposed to have cancer".

He also described how the condition was picked up after he went for a flu jab and routine check-up.

Fry said he is "feeling fit and well".

Urging all men "of a certain age" (the NHS recommends men of 50 and above) to take a Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test which can flag up any irregularities, since one in eight men in the United Kingdom will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during their lives. And then the next day Tony calls again and he says, 'Oh Stephen, something rather mischievous has showed up.' I was told to have a biopsy ... and the next day I get the results and, yes indeed, there is a cancer there. They took the prostate out.

"These things are graded".

'They took the prostate out and eleven lymph nodes, ' he confessed, before adding: 'This was clearly was an aggressive little bugger'.


"I'm sorry I haven't felt able to talk about it till now, but here I am explaining what has been going on", he wrote.

He closed the video by saying, "Thank you for listening and watching, and get yourself checked and follow your doctor's advice".

"The other was to get rid of the prostate by sending little robots in through tiny holes in the stomach. Goodness knows I'm not the most important person in the world, but if you are ever on television and do things in the public eye people naturally exhibit a great interest in you".

"As far as we know, it's all been got". We're in December and it's almost Christmas and an operation is decided on and in the first week of January, I had the operation.

Fry said his doctors believe the early action saved his life and urged "men of a certain age" to think about getting their PSA - prostate-specific antigen - levels checked with a doctor.
