King Charles III has been diagnosed with cancer

King Charles III has been diagnosed with cancer and has made the decision to reduce his public duties while undergoing treatment.

The statement did not specify the type or severity of the cancer.“During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted.  

In other instances, medical professionals may identify cancerous tissue that originated elsewhere in the body while examining prostate tissue removed during surgery. 

“The prostate could be affected by cancers that are not of prostatic origin, such as lymphoma – a type of blood tumor – or cancer of the urothelium 

“The Prince is appreciative of his medical team for their skillful care and prompt action, maintains a positive outlook on his treatment, and eagerly anticipates resuming his full public duties at the earliest opportunity,” the palace stated.
