Sir Rod Stewart has been cleared of prostate cancer followinga secret three-year struggle with the disease.

The 74 – year-old singer was given the all-clear in July after his cancer was diagnosed in its early stages in February 2016.

He urged men to get their prostates checked more regularly toincrease their chances of survival, The Daily Mirror said.

Sir Rod spoke spoke out at a fundraising event for the Prostate Project and European Tour Foundation charity in Surrey on Saturday.

He said: “No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody. “I’m in the clear, now, simply because I caught it early. I have so many tests.”

It came after Stephen Fry joined a campaign to fight unexpected and “scary” prostate cancer, which kills 11, 000 men a year.

The comedian, presenter and writer announced last year that he had been diagnosed with the disease.

He is sharing his cancer story alongside other famous talents including musician Nile Rodgers and Oscar-winning actor Jim Broadbent.

The Men, We Are With You campaign by Prostate Cancer UK is aimed at encouraging men to realize the disease can affect anyone, and that there is help available.

Fry said: “A prostate cancer diagnosis is a scary thing – you never expect it’s going to happen to you.

“Thankfully, mine was caught early enough that something could be done but I know that it is not the same for everyone.

“Prostate Cancer UK are investing in vital research that will hopefully take us that one step closer to finding a screening program.

“This could help men have a better chance at early diagnosis and therefore give them more time.”
