    Imus announces he has prostate cancer - 3/16/09 - New York News and Tri-State News - 7online.com

    NEW YORK (WABC) -- Don Imus announced on his radio show this morning that he has stage II prostate cancer.


    The 68-year-old Imus made the surprise announcement on his radio show at around 7:30 a.m.

    He told his listeners he has full faith "his doctors will beat it."
    He did not say when he was starting treatment.


    "The day you find out is fine," he said. "But the next morning when you get up, your knees are shaking. I didn't think I could make it to work."
    Wearing black sunglasses and slumped behind his microphone, Imus speculated that the cancer may have come from stress.


    Imus works now for the ABC Radio Networks and rural RFD-TV after being fired by CBS Radio and MSNBC in spring 2007 for referring to the Rutgers women as "nappy-headed hos."

    Stress I'm not sure. The primary risk factor is age. This type of cancer is a glandular cancer and a slow progressing CA. There is a genetic link between type 2 diabetes and prostate cancer.

    As with all CA. Of course, stage 2 means it has not spread beyond the organ.
