Terry Bradshaw Reveals Cancer Diagnosis, Beating Both Bladder and Skin Cancer

Terry Bradshaw Reveals Cancer Diagnosis, Beating Both Bladder and Skin Cancer

The announcement came after last week, Bradshaw had an incident during the pregame show where he ran out of breath.

"Last week on this show, I ran out of breath, and Howie [Long] helped me up. And a lot of people are asking what’s wrong with me, what’s happened to me physically. I just want to address it and let you know what has happened in my life," Bradshaw said at the top of the broadcast.

"In November, I was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I went to the Yale University Medical Center -- surgery, treatment. As of today, I am bladder-cancer free. That’s the good news," he shared.

While he's bladder cancer free, the good news was short-lived. In March, Bradshaw was diagnosed with skin cancer.

"Then in March, feeling good. I had a bad neck. I get an MRI. Now we find a tumor in my left neck. And it’s a Merkel cell tumor, which is a rare form of skin cancer. So I had that surgery done at M.D. Anderson in Houston."

"Folks, I may not look like my old self, but I feel like my old self," he continued. "I’m cancer free, I’m feeling great. And over time, I’m going to be back to where I normally am."

Bradshaw's announcement came with lots of love and support from his co-hosts, who have been aware of the NFL great's private health battle.

"I gotta say, TB, and everybody here, we know what you've been going through, and you are the ultimate teammate, and you know we love you, and you hold this show together," Michael Strahan said. "Regardless of all that, we're just so happy that you're here, and we're happy that you're cancer free."

He continued, "And I think you're gonna give a lot of hope to a lot of people out there who are going through something very similar."

However, the sweet moment didn't come without a crack at Bradshaw, with Strahan lightening the mood and poking fun at his co-host, as is not too foreign on Fox NFL Sunday's game day broadcasts.

"But I also -- I'm just curious as to why it took this for people to ask what's wrong with you after all these years?" Strahan joked.

"Some of us have been asking that for several years," co-host Curt Menefee added.

"You've been through a lot, partner," Howie Long said, with the panel commiserating over Bradshaw's news in between laughs.

Bradshaw's health update was also met with lots of encouragement from viewers and fans alike, with one user tweet, "I speak for everyone when we say that’s wonderful news," and another writing, "TB is awesome! Glad he is better!"
