Former England and British & Irish Lions prop Alex Corbisiero’s cancer has, unfortunately, returned. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 2019.
Corbisiero said the following in an Instagram post:
"When I opened up about my cancer experience in March, I was very hopeful it was behind me.
"Unfortunately, the doctors discovered that it has spread to some of my lymph nodes. I’m currently on week 5 of 9 of chemotherapy under the amazing care of the staff at Guy’s hospital in London.
"I’m mentally and physically in a good place and staying positive throughout this rollercoaster of ups and downs. I am surrounded by my fiancée, family and close friends, and very grateful for all the love and support.
"I just want to remind everyone, despite Covid, please go and get checked! Time is of the essence and I am very lucky to have caught this early again.
"In the words of my hero, @therock , 'Just Bring It'."
The 32 year old won 31 caps for England between 2011 and 2016 and was a member of the 2013 Lions touring party to Australia, where he won two caps.
