Disgraced influencer, Andrew Tate who is currently being held in Romania on suspicion of organised crime and human trafficking has denied that he has cancer after confirming last week that he has a ‘dark spot on his lung‘.
In a new revelation, Tate said the scar on his lung ‘is from an old battle’ after the medical details were released last week.
‘I do not have cancer. My lungs contain precisely 0 smoking damage. In fact, I have an 8L lung capacity and the vital signs of an Olympic athlete,’ the update said.’
‘There is nothing but a scar on my lung from an old battle. True warriors are scarred both inside and out,’ the post added in a style that has become typical of Tate’s social media messages since his detention.
Tate’s doctors, in both Romania and Dubai, reportedly wrote in medical documents that the influencer has a lesion of his upper right lung – a condition that has been described as a ‘serious health condition’.
His doctor said the lesion could be a sign of a carinoid tumour – a rare type of slow-growing cancer.
As a result, his doctors have requested that Tate, who has been held at a Romanian prison since late December on sex trafficking charges, be released from prison so he can receive treatment in Dubai.
But on Monday morning, Tate’s Twitter account rubbished the report around his health.
The former kickboxer is currently being held in Romania alongside his brother Tristan on suspicion of organised crime and human trafficking, which they deny.
