Actor Ryan O'Neal Diagnosed with Prostate Cancer

By April 17, 2012

Follow me on:

In a statement released Monday, actor Ryan O'Neal revealed that he has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. The 70 year old said in the statement that he suffers from stage II prostate cancer and  is expected to make a full recovery. Specific details such as treatment methods were not disclosed.

Stage 2 prostate cancer indicates that the cancer remains confined to the prostate gland and has not spread to tissues and organs beyond the gland. It is divided into two categories, IIA and IIB. Certain criteria such as tumor size and Gleason score determine the stage of the cancer. Typical treatments for this stage of prostate cancer include radiation therapy, surgery to remove the prostate (prostatectomy), and in some cases, watchful waiting.
