Social media influencer Andrew Tate, currently detained in Romania on suspicion of human trafficking and organized crime, has revealed Friday he has a ‘dark spot on his lung’ that is ‘most likely a tumour’.
Tate attended a medical consultation with doctors in Dubai about his ‘serious’ health condition that must ‘not be taken lightly’ before he was arrested in December.
The report was confirmed by Tate’s legal team and by his manager on an Instagram story that said: ‘Yes, it’s true. I was the one driving with him to and from the hospital in Dubai.’
His doctors have reportedly requested a release from detention so Tate can seek medical care in Dubai.
Tate was diagnosed with the condition in Dubai, as confirmed by the UAE hospital where he received medical care, in a statement published following reports of his diagnosis.
Some medical reports linked to Tate’s condition were leaked.
Romanian authorities have denied medical requests to allow Tate to return to Dubai, and have instead provided local alternatives.
His most recent visit was to a Dubai hospital in December 2022 for a chest x-ray. He returned to the hospital on December for a CT scan, the DailyMail reported on Friday.
His doctor wrote in a letter and medical report that an ‘urgent investigation’ was required into the supposed lesion in Tate’s lung, according to the same report.
In response to a leak of the letter, King’s College Hospital London where Tate was receiving treatment said: ‘We confirm that the letter, which details Mr Tate’s visits at our hospital in Dubai Hills, and the Medical Centres in Dubai Marina and Jumeirah, as well as the diagnostic tests he underwent was issued by one of our family medicine practitioners Dr Ali Razzak.’
Razzak is the Medical Director of King’s Dubai Marina Medical center and Tate’s primary care physician, according to the statement.
