Ryan O’Neal Diagnosed with Cancer

Actor Ryan O’Neal revealed today that his doctors have detected stage IV cancer in his prostate. “I feel fortunate that it was detected early and according to my extraordinary team of doctors the prognosis is positive for a full recovery,” he said in a statement, along with a warning to get regular check-ups for early detection. O’Neal previously overcame leukemia in the late 1990s, but lost his longtime partner Farrah Fawcett to anal cancer three years ago. His memoir about their life together called Both of Us is released May 1.
