Ben Stiller announces prostate cancer battle

Actor Ben Stiller has today revealed that he is battling with prostate cancer.

Speaking on Howard Stern about the news for the first time of his "immediately aggressive" prostate cancer, Stiller confirmed that he had surgery immediately and is currently cancer-free but still undergoes regular tests.

"It came out of the blue for me. I had no idea," Stiller said. "At first, I didn't know what was gonna happen. I was scared. It just stopped everything in your life because you can't plan for a movie because you don't know what's gonna happen."

Stiller pleaded with others to take PSA (Prostate-Specific Antigen) tests. "I wanted to talk about it because of the [PSA] test... I feel like the test saved my life," he said.

"It's the second most deadly cancer, but it's about one of the most curable," he detailed.
