American megastar Beyoncé’s dad, Mr. Mathew Knowles, has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
He made his health crisis known during a live radio programme on Wednesday.
Beyoncé’s dad, who is 67 years old, noted that early detection helped him in managing the life-threatening disease.
Mr. Knowles said he had noticed blood stains that always appeared as a red dot on his shirt and bedspreads, noting that the subsequent concerns made him go for a mammogram.
“The mammogram revealed that I have breast cancer,” he said.
After informing his adult daughters, Beyoncé and Solange, they both got tested also.
He said he has since been on treatment, while also advising men to be more vigilant about their health.
