Don Imus says he has prostate cancer
Controversial U.S. radio personality Don Imus said on
The Don Imus Show Monday that he is suffering from stage 2 prostate cancer.
The New York Post reported that the 68-year-old conservative talk show host made the announcement at 7:15 a.m. EDT.
Usmagazine.com quoted the shock jock as saying Monday that he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last Wednesday.
The day you find out is fine, Imus said.
But the next morning when you get up, your knees are shaking. I didn't think I could make it to work. ... I don't want to have great arrogance about it but I have great doctors. I'll be fine. And if I'm not fine, it's no big deal. ... The prognosis couldn't be better.
