The actor decided to talk about the fight against oncology only now, although he was diagnosed with it last year. “Perhaps I am dying,” he confessed. Doctors put the 75-year-old artist in front of a disappointing fact: he was diagnosed with an angioimmunoblastic T-cell lymphoma in the third stage.
Doctors say the disease is quite rare. It makes up only 2-3% of all human lymphomas. Patients complain of swollen lymph nodes, pain throughout the body, the disease causes the spleen and liver to enlarge. The same thing happened with the movie star. According to him, he learned about cancer when his tonsils fell ill and swollen.
Sam Neill underwent chemotherapy and now the insidious disease is in remission. However, it will not be possible to get rid of the disease forever – the actor is forced to take courses of drugs that inhibit the growth of pathogenic cells every month until the end of his life.
