Acclaimedd actor Irrfan took to Twitter to reveal that he has been diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour. These tumours develop from cells of the endocrine (hormonal) and nervous systems, and can appear in organs such as the lungs, stomach, pancreas, appendix and intestines.
In his statement, Irrfan said that battling the condition “has admittedly been difficult”, but he is hopeful because of the love and strength of his close ones.
The actor said that he will be going abroad for treatment, and requested well-wishers to keep sending their good wishes and prayers. He also took a dig at the speculation doing the rounds that he was suffering from brain cancer.
