Martina Navratilova diagnosed with early-stage Throat & Breast Cancer

All-time tennis legend Martina Navratilova announced that she has been diagnosed with early-stage throat and breast cancer. The 66-year-old said, “This double whammy is serious but still fixable. “I’m hoping for a favourable outcome. It’s going to stink for a while, but I’ll fight with all have I got.”

Navratilova, who was previously diagnosed with non-invasive breast cancer—ductal carcinoma in situ, or DCIS—in 2010, has been diagnosed with an unrelated form of breast cancer, still in its early stages, and was discovered during throat examinations.

Martina Navratilova’s agent, Mary Greenham, said the tennis legend discovered an enlarged lymph node in her neck during the WTA Finals in Fort Worth, Texas, which was held from October 31 to November 7.

A biopsy was done, and she was later diagnosed with stage one throat cancer, her agent said. When Navratilova was undergoing throat tests, her agent said a suspicious form was found in her breast, which later was diagnosed as cancer. Navratilova announced that the diagnosis at such an early stage is good for her health, and she will begin the treatment soon.

The all-time great has been an inspirational figure in the Tennis world. She has won 18 grand slam singles titles, 31 grand slam doubles titles, and 10 grand slam mixed doubles titles. She still holds the WTA Tour’s all-time record of 167 titles.
