Radio host Chris Evans, 57, reveals skin cancer diagnosis live on air

Radio host Chris Evans has announced that he has been diagnosed with skin cancer.

Chris, 57, made the announcement during his radio broadcast today (August 21) when he also told listeners that the cancer had been discovered in its early stages.

He shared: "We need to discuss what's going on with this issue. It is a melanoma. There's this phrase called a malignant melanoma – you know once you get something and you find out all about it – that is a redundant phrase because if it is a melanoma it is malignant.

"But it's been caught so early, just so you know, that it should be completely treatable. Treatment will happen on the 14th of September."

Chris, who is an avid runner shared, that he was rather upset that in the month following treatment he would be unable to run, adding that he's going to do nothing but run until September 14.

It comes after Chris had a skin cancer scare back in 2019. Recalling this he said: "I went and had a few marks on my body inspected by a skin expert before Christmas and she said, 'You need to come and see me again, just because of your complexion.'"

At the time he was told her had "nothing to worry about" but should get checked every year, which is how his skin cancer was caught so early.

This is a breaking news story and is being updated in real time.
