Monday, 16th September 2019
"No-one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody. I'm in the clear, now, simply because I caught it early. I have so many tests," he said, according to The Mirror.
The 74-year-old was speaking at an event for the Prostate Project and golf's European Tour Foundation.
He joked to wife Penny Lancaster that he was going to use the evening to "come out", adding: "It's not what you think. Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer."
He said: "If you're positive, and you work through it and you keep a smile on your face… I've worked for two years and I've just been happy, and the good Lord looked after me."
He urged men to get checked, adding: "Guys, you've got to really go to the doctor."
He was speaking at the event in Wentworth, Surrey, alongside former Faces bandmate Ronnie Wood, who has previously been treated for lung cancer. "Somebody up there likes us, Rod," he said, the paper reported.
