Yuvraj Singh diagnosed with cancer

Yuvraj Singh rrently undergoing chemotherapy in the United States. A tumour on his lung was diagnosed as non-malignant late last year, but his physiotherapist has now confirmed that it is cancerous. Dr Jatin Chaudhary said it was "100% curable" and that Yuvraj would be "fit to be back on the field" in May.

"It is a rare tumour and is cancerous but it has been detected in stage 1 itself (Stage 0 refers to cancer that is just beginning, while stages 1 to 4 are progressively more advanced cancers)," Chaudhary, also an accupuncture specialist, told PTI. The tumour is said to be on the left lung between the heart and the food pipe and had led to frequent bouts of coughing and breathlessness.

Chaudhary said the condition however, had now been diagnosed as, "100 percent curable."

"The doctors decided that he would have to undergo chemotherapy and he travelled to the US on January 26. End of March, he would undergo a CT scan and should recover by then."

Yuvraj hasn't played competitive cricket since the Tests against West Indies last November, when news of his tumour became public. He had originally hoped to make a comeback in the tri-series in Australia, but last month it was announced that he would not be fit in time for the IPL, which begins in April. "Thankfully no surgery is required, he is already a lot better than what he was and can't wait to be back on the cricket field.

"Once he is done with chemo in March, his rehabilitation would be complete by April end and he would be perfectly fit to play in May."

A Man-of-the-Series performance in India's World Cup win in 2011 has been sandwiched by two forgettable years for Yuvraj. He battled with form and fitness in 2010, losing his place in the side. After the World Cup, several injuries curtailed his appearances for India, before the detection of the tumour forced his current absence from cricket.
