AMSTERDAM — Dutch singer René Froger has prostate cancer, but the illness has been detected in its early stages.
Froger's manager said on Monday the cancer was detected during a recent periodical medical examination.
He said the cancer is in its early stages and Froger will undergo surgery in the near future.
"René feels supported by his family and friends and looks to the operation with confidence," his manager said.
If prostate cancer is found early, while still confined to the gland itself, the chance that sufferers will survive is excellent
Prostate cancer has steadily become more common over the past few decades, mystifying doctors.
