Robert DeNiro cancer scare

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Actor Robert De Niro has been diagnosed with prostate cancer but is expected to recover fully, a spokesman said Monday.

Doctors for De Niro, 60, a two-time Academy Award winner, caught the cancer at an early stage during a regular health checkup within the past week, De Niro publicist Stan Rosenfield said.

De Niro is in otherwise excellent physical condition and doctors expect a full recovery, Rosenfield said. The publicist said De Niro did not want to disclose if he would be undergoing surgery or some other treatment.

"He's a private person and doesn't care to have his treatment out for public consumption," Rosenfield said.

De Niro, nominated six times for Academy Awards, won the best-actor Oscar for 1980's "Raging Bull" and the supporting-actor honor for 1974's "The Godfather, Part II."

I LOVE LOVE Robert DeNiro, he is one of my favorite actors. This really scared me when I read it. I'm really glad he's going to be ok!

My understanding is this type of cancer is very curable if detected early, as was his.

I love him as an actor, too. He has made something like 60 movies in the last 40 years. I don't think I've ever seen a movie with him that I didn't like (although I've never watched Cape Fear because I think it would be too disturbing for me).

Hopefully he will have a full and speedy recovery.

I was shocked when I saw this also, I love Robert DeNiro as well. My thoughts are with him.
