Dolph Lundgren Reveals Secret Battle with Cancer
Dolph Lundgren, the 65-year-old actor, was recently seen arriving at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. He cut a casual figure in a cream zip-up hoodie and trendy black track pants as he stepped out after recently opening up about his cancer diagnosis. Lundgren sported a stylish pair of sunglasses to protect his eyes from the sun, and he slicked back his silver hair in his usual hairstyle while opting for a clean-shaven look. He did not sport any other accessories for an overall casual and comfortable ensemble. Lundgren was spotted holding only his cell phone and nothing else as he made his arrival.
The Swedish star opened up about his battle on ‘In Depth with Graham Besinger’ and revealed he was first diagnosed with lung cancer in 2015. Lundgren said he went into remission but then the cancer returned in 2020 and was told he had two to three years left to live by one doctor. He had went for a second opinion and said the treatment he is now being administered has resulted in the tumors shrinking.
In a clip from the interview, while still wearing a hospital gown, he said: ‘It’s the day after my surgery, they took out one tumor, then they took out another two they found and another three small ones. Hopefully it’s cleaned out. If it dies, it dies.’
Lundgren also wore black sneakers with a contrasting white foam platform. He was out with his 25-year-old fiancé, Emma Krokdal, last month.
Earlier this week, Lundgren revealed that he has been battling cancer for eight years. He speculated whether his past use of steroids for bodybuilding is to blame.
Lundgren is known for his iconic roles in action movies such as ‘Rocky IV’ and ‘Universal Soldier’. He has also appeared in recent movies like ‘Creed II’ and ‘Aquaman’. Despite his health struggles, Lundgren has continued to work on his acting career and has several projects in the works, including ‘The Expendables 4’ and ‘Black Water: Abyss’. Fans of the actor have rallied around him and sent their well wishes as he continues to battle cancer.
