King Charles III Diagnosed with Cancer Less Than 2 Years Into Tenure as King

King Charles III Diagnosed with Cancer, Postpones Public Engagements

Buckingham Palace announced on Monday that King Charles III has been diagnosed with cancer, just over a year after ascending to the throne. The diagnosis was made during a hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, with subsequent tests confirming the presence of cancer. While the specific type of cancer was not disclosed, it has been clarified that it is not prostate cancer.

Following the diagnosis, the 75-year-old king has commenced regular treatments and has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. However, he will continue to undertake state business and official paperwork as usual. The palace expressed gratitude to the medical team for their swift intervention and assured that King Charles remains positive about his treatment.

In a statement, Buckingham Palace emphasized that the king chose to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and to aid public understanding of cancer. The news comes just a week after King Charles was discharged from the hospital following treatment for an enlarged prostate.

While the timeline for King Charles’ return to royal duties remains uncertain, all public engagements have been put on hold. Queen Camilla has been by his side, supporting him as he recuperates. President Joe Biden expressed concern about King Charles’ health and stated his intention to reach out to him.

Prostate cancer, although not specified in this case, remains a prevalent concern in both the US and the UK, particularly among older adults. The NHS reported a surge in inquiries about prostate health following news of King Charles’ treatment last week, highlighting the public’s awareness and interest in cancer prevention and treatment.
