Irrfan Khan diagnosed with brain cancer, to undergo surgery

The suspense circling around Irrfan Khan’s suffering from rare disease finally came to an end. It is painful to learn that the versatile actor is suffering from brain cancer and was currently admitted to Kokilaben hospital. After lots of tests, it was concluded that Irrfan Khan was suffering from Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) Grade IV, also called ‘death on diagnosis’ is one of the deadly cancers.

It is believed that Irrfan Khan for the last couple of weeks had been having convulsion attacks along with overlapping of speech following which was immediately rushed to hospital.

MRI was conducted along with other tests. The fierceness of cancer is very high. Doctors had to do needle biopsy to ascertain the nature of the tumour. Immediate surgery is the only option but Irrfan Khan is not ready to undergo surgery. He rather prefers radiations with few chemotherapy. The final decision will be made only the biopsy report comes.

Irrfan had earlier tweeted about his disease, “Sometimes you wake up with a jolt with life shaking you up. The last fifteen days, my life has been a suspense story. Little had I known that my search for rare stories would make me find a rare disease. I have never given up and have always fought for my choices and always will.” He further added, “My family and friends are with me and we are working it out the best way possible. In trying times, please don’t speculate as I will myself share with you my story within a week- ten days, when the further investigations come with a conclusive diagnosis. Till them, wish the best for me,” he said.

Due to illness, the actor has put all the work commitments on hold, Irrfan’s publicist had earlier revealed, “The doctors have strictly advised complete bed rest for Irrfan. His team is working on rescheduling all his commitments in the best interest of all causing as minimal as issues to everyone.”

On the work front, Irrfan Khan’s will be next seen in ‘Blackmail’ and is preparing for his Visha Bharadwaj’s movie with Deepika Padukone.
