Rod Stewart admits he had prostate cancer but is now cancer-free

Early identification of prostate cancer, according to legendary vocalist Rod Stewart, enabled for two years of treatment.

Rod Stewart, the iconic musician, has declared himself “in the clear” of prostate cancer after receiving a diagnosis and two years of therapy.

Stewart, 74, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in February 2016 after a regular test.

The artist, who was knighted in 2016 for his achievements to music and charity, made the revelation at a special Prostate Project event alongside old Faces bandmates Ronnie Wood and Kenny Jones.

“Two years ago, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer,” Stewart told a 500-person audience at the Wentworth Club in Surrey, England, over the weekend.

“No one knows, but I figured it was about time I told everyone,” he explained. “I’m now safe because I caught it early.”

The Grammy Award-winning artist is now working to raise prostate cancer awareness, encouraging men to take preventative measures and seek routine examinations to learn more about their health condition and to be aware of any potential early warning indications of the disease.

“Guys, you’ve definitely had to go to the doctor,” the famed singer remarked to his 48-year-old wife Penny. “If you stay positive, push through it, and keep a smile on your face… I’ve been working for two years, and the Lord has provided for me.”

“Someone up there likes us, Rod,” Wood, a lung cancer survivor, said when Stewart concluded.

The musician has been cancer-free since July, according to sources.
