Megastar Chiranjeevi reacts on cancer reports; Gives clarity

Actor Chiranjeevi has issued a clarification after several reports claimed that he was diagnosed with cancer and got cured after treatment. Taking to Twitter on Saturday evening, Chiranjeevi penned a long note saying that the reports emerged after he spoke on the need to raise awareness about cancer.

In his statement, written in Telugu, Chiranjeevi clarified that he undertook a test earlier in which 'non-cancerous polyps were detected and removed'. He also added that he had said if the polyps weren't removed it 'would have turned out to be cancer'. Chiranjeevi said that as several reports misquoted him it led to 'unnecessary confusion'.

Chiranjeevi wrote, "A while ago I spoke about the need to raise awareness about cancer while inaugurating a cancer centre. 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.".

He also added, "But some media organizations did not understand this properly and started publishing 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 (folded hands emoji)."
