WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan has revealed he is now cancer-free following prostate surgery.
“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan has announced that he is cancer-free after undergoing surgery as a result of prostate cancer. The WWE legend, who talked up early detection, said the cancer had not spread throughout other parts of his body in a video tweeted out on Wednesday.
“The cancer was encapsulated inside my prostate,” he said. “They checked my bones, that came out clear. The surrounding tissue came out clear, the lymph nodes came out clear – so thank God I’m cancer-free.”
Duggan announced back in October that he was set for surgery following his diagnosis. His wife would subsequently reveal that the operation went as planned.
In his short video on Wednesday, Duggan also disclosed having battled kidney cancer 20 years ago. He was also hospitalized three years ago after experiencing chest pains that prompted a diagnosis noting his heart had gone into atrial fibrillation. The former WWE and WCW superstar was rushed to hospital for emergency heart surgery this October as well.
