Sanjay Dutt was diagnosed with lung cancer recently. However, in order to not create a panic, the actor had said that he would be taking a break from films on medical grounds. He had not revealed the medical emergency and had requested fans not to speculate. He asked them to keep supporting and praying for him. However, it soon was revealed that the Sadak actor has been detected with lung cancer. Fans started pouring in wishes and messages for him and social media was in mayhem. Here's how the actor and his family learned about his cancer.
On August 8, Sanjay Dutt was rushed to the hospital after he complained of breathlessness. He thought he had symptoms of COVID and hence took the test. However, the results were negative. He was advised to take a CT scan and a PET scan as well. It was then revealed that the Prassthanam actor had developed lung cancer. The whole ordeal was revealed to Spotboye by a source. "Upon reaching the hospital, it was detected that air entry was not happening from his right lung. A CT scan further revealed that there was fluid accumulation in his right lung (pleural effusion) accompanied by two lesions, one on each lung. Sanjay was told that it could be a bacterial infection, tuberculosis, an adverse effect of strenuous exercise wherein he might have hurt himself, or cancer. The fluid was removed, the volume was as high as 1.5 litres. A 2-day hospitalisation followed. Sanju kept asking a lot of questions especially when he was told that the extracted fluid was about to be sent for detailed diagnosis," the source said.
The histopathology department of the hospital found out that the fluid had cancer cells. Further, Dutt was advised to take a CT scan and a PET scan. The results of both tests confirmed his cancer. He had a counseling session wherein the actor was asked about his illness. He consulted an oncologist who advised him of the possible treatments. At 61, the only available option for his treatment is chemotheraphy. He has been given the choice to take the treatment abroad.
We hope Baba recovers soon and is back in action again.
