Ben Stiller Announced He Was Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer Two Years Ago

Ahh this sucks!

Ben Still has announced that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago!

The actor and funny man had a chat with on Howard Stern‘s SiriusXM radio show on Tuesday morning when he admitted to being poorly.

This was the first time Ben talked about is cancer as we had no clue that he had it at all!

He said:

“It came out of the blue for me. I had no idea. At first, I didn’t know what was gonna happen. I was scared. It just stopped everything in your life because you can’t plan for a movie because you don’t know what’s gonna happen.”

Must have been so scary for him!

Ben then opened up about why he decided to share such personal news as he admitted that he wants to spread the word about cancer and to get people to go and get tested.

He then continued to say:

“If I hadn’t gotten the test, my doctor started giving it to me at 46, I still wouldn’t know. I wanted to talk about it because of the [PSA] test … I feel like the test saved my life.”

Ben admitted that he had no history of prostate cancer in his family, his doctor was able to detect the cancer due to a simple blood test!

Thankfully Ben is fine now and it’s good to see him spread the word for people to get tested.

Hopefully people will listen to him.
