    Gregg Valentino confirms that he has throat cancer

    Gregg Valentino confirms that he has throat cancer

    Gregg Valentino has been around the bodybuilding scene for a long time. However, he was recently given some tragic news, which will change his life forever.

    Valentino has always been a very outspoken, somewhat controversial figure in bodybuilding. He has never been afraid to speak his mind, regardless of the potential consequences. As a result, he has become close friends with several bodybuilders, and other figures in the sport, as people appreciate his upfront and honest approach to life.

    However, in a recent video to his YouTube channel, Gregg Valentino confirmed some heartbreaking news. The New Yorker revealed that he has throat cancer. As he explains, he went to get a tumor removed from his throat, and to his surprise, was told that he had cancer.

    ďAs you all know, I had surgery not too long ago. I had been telling everybody I thought it was Human Papillomavirus, because I had this growth in my throat. It was actually pretty big, it was over two centimetersÖ After that, I went to the doctor, and it is cancer. So I do have throat cancer. We didnít think it was cancer, I didnít think it was cancer, but itís throat cancer.Ē

    This is terrible news, but Valentino does not want people feeling sorry for him.

    ďNow Iím not telling you this because I want everybody to write Ďoh, donít worry about it Gregg.í I appreciate everybody that cares for me and supports me. Yeah, Iím going to fight this. Iíll be alright. They did cut that thing out of me, so thatís a plus already. But, I do have throat cancer.Ē

    Sad, most cancers don't have associated risk factors (recent studies show 2/3 people afflicted didn't have the typical habits associated with the particular cancer). I will say that we are findings more and more cancers linked to viruses, including oropharyngeal cancers - linked to HPV
