Sanjay Dutt has been diagnosed with stage three lung cancer
The actor visited the hospital 3 days ago after suffering from chest paints
Sanjay Dutt has allegedly been diagnosed with stage three lung cancer according to reports and close sources. Dutt, aged 61 posted a statement on Twitter, announcing that he would be taking a “short break” from professional commitments to focus on medical treatment.
On Saturday, Sanjay Dutt was admitted to the Lilavati hospital after suffering from chest pains and fluctuating oxygen saturation levels. Dutt was then released from the hospital after testing negative from coronavirus.
Yesterday, reports came in that Dutt has been diagnosed with stage three lung cancer. Dutt has a history of serious drug addiction, and has previously talked about how he started smoking from a very young age. People who smoke have a higher chance of getting lung cancer as it gradually damages the body’s cells in the lung lining.
Taking to Twitter he wrote ““Hi friends, I am taking a short break from work for some medical treatment. My family and friends are with me and I urge my well wishers not to worry or unnecessarily speculate. With your love and good wishes, I will be back soon!”.
Although he has told fans not to worry or speculate, there are already many messages of support from worried fans and the hashtag #sanjaydutt was trending on Twitter yesterday.
Sanjay Dutt will soon be travelling to the United States of America, where he will undergo immediate cancer treatment for his lungs. We hope the actor makes a speedy recovery.
Dutt’s new film Sadak 2 is due to release on August 28.
