King Charles may only have a few years left to live if cancer has spread, claims doctor

King Charles may only have a few years left to live if his cancer has spread to his vital organs and become difficult to treat, according to new reports.

Yesterday royal fans around the world were shocked to learn that the King had been diagnosed with cancer following a procedure to tackle an enlarged prostate.

Buckingham Palace claimed that the cancer was not related to his prostate, and that it was a separate issue that had been discovered while he was in hospital.

“During The King’s recent hospital procedure for benign prostate enlargement, a separate issue of concern was noted,” Buckingham Palace said on Monday.

“Subsequent diagnostic tests have identified a form of cancer.”

The statement said that Charles would postpone public duties for treatment, but projected optimism about his prognosis.

“His Majesty has today commenced a schedule of regular treatments, during which time he has been advised by doctors to postpone public-facing duties. Throughout this period, His Majesty will continue to undertake state business and official paperwork as usual.

“The King is grateful to his medical team for their swift intervention, which was made possible thanks to his recent hospital procedure. He remains wholly positive about his treatment and looks forward to returning to full public duty as soon as possible.

“His Majesty has chosen to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation and in the hope it may assist public understanding for all those around the world who are affected by cancer.”

Now, having spoken with medical experts, Radar Online speculate that Charles’ cancer is likely to be near his prostate, and could be in his liver, stomach, or lung.

New York Internist Dr. Stuart Fischer told Radar: “You die with prostate cancer, not of it, according to most current studies. There are medicines and they have been around for at least 30 years. They are anti-testosterones, and, in most cases, they prevent the growth of the metastasis.”

“Once a metastasis spreads to the lung and liver, for example, it is quite difficult to treat,” Dr. Fischer added. “If the cancer was found in the lung and liver for example his life expectancy will be a couple of years – if he’s lucky.”

Another medical professional, Dr. Gabe Mirkin, told Radar that the cancer was likely spotted as King Charles was examined with a sonogram, a CT scan, or inside an MRI machine.

“Once a cancer spreads to other organs the prognosis is five years or under five years survival rate,” Mirkin said.

Here’s to wishing King Charles the very best of recoveries!
