Cricketer Yuvraj Singh is suffering from cancer, but it is not lung cancer, doctors at Max Hospital, Saket (New Delhi) said. The malignant tumour is between Yuvraj’s lungs and not inside his lungs as reported earlier, said Dr Nitish Rohatgi of Max Saket while addressing a press conference on Monday.

Claiming that the tumour was curable, the doctor said that Yuvraj is undergoing treatment in the USA for the tumour, which is mostly curable with therapy. He said that the treatment and chemotherapy at the Cancer Research Institute in Boston is unlikely to cause any damage to Yuvraj’s career and the entire procedure has been planned so that Yuvraj can start his training in 10 weeks time.
