Dr. Drew Announces That He Is A Prostate Cancer Survivor
The HLN host and board-certified internist revealed that he underwent surgery over the Fourth of July holiday for prostate cancer and he is now free of the disease.
“While many of you were celebrating the Fourth of July, I was at home on my couch recovering from a radical robotic prostatectomy,” Dr. Drew, full name Drew Pinsky, wrote in a lengthy post on the website for his HLN show, Dr. Drew On Call.
“Four hours of surgery had left me in great pain, without an appetite, and in need of help from my college-age son, Jordan, to get up and lie down. But I was cancer-free for the first time in at least two years.”
