Megastar Chiranjeevi has clarified that he has only undergone cancer tests in the past, but he did not suffer from cancer. He said that when he spoke about cancer awareness in a program, some people misunderstood him as being affected by cancer. He gave a short explanation that he only said that the doctors found non-cancerous polyps in the tests and removed them.
Chiranjeevi wrote on Twitter: A while ago I spoke about the need to raise awareness about cancer while inaugurating a cancer center. I told you that cancer can be prevented if you undergo regular medical tests. I was alert and took a colon scope test. I said that non-cancerous polyps were detected and removed. I only said, ‘If I hadn’t done the test first, it would have turned out to be cancer’. That’s why everyone should take precautions and undergo medical tests/screening’, I only said. But some media organizations did not understand this properly and started scrolling and web articles saying ‘I got cancer’ and ‘I survived due to treatment’. This has caused unnecessary confusion. Many well wishers are sending messages about my health. This clarification is for all of them. Also an appeal to such journalists. Don’t write nonsense without understanding the subject. Because of this, many people are scared and hurt.
On the work front Chiranjeevi will be next seen playing the lead role in Bholaa Shankar.
