British actor Stephen Fry has revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer late last year.
"For the last two months I've been in the throes of a rather unwelcome and unexpected adventure," he said in a video posted to YouTube.
"I'm sorry I haven't felt able to talk about it till now, but here I am explaining what has been going on."
The 60-year-old went for a flu jab, and his doctor suggested a general check-up, which led to an MRI and the cancer diagnosis.
"I felt my life was saved by early intervention so I would urge any of you men of a certain age to get your PSA levels checked," said Fry.
He says he feels "fit and well and happy" after having lymph nodes removed, and is now in the clear.
