Hacksaw Jim Duggan battling cancer again


Hacksaw Jim Duggan is currently battling cancer again.

Duggan on Instagram uploaded a message saying that despite the removal of his prostate last year, his cancer has returned.

“It seems that my cancer treatment is not over even after the removal of my prostate last October,” he said. “And tomorrow, I am getting my second hormone shot and Tuesday I am being set up for radiation treatment, which will be eight weeks, five days a week.”

Duggan said he was optimistic about recovery, though he may have to cancel dates set up in the future as a result of radiation treatment.

“The doctors are very optimistic that they caught it early,” he said. “It’s a terrifying time for me and my family. But the doctors also said to go ahead and live life, which we’re going to do.”

In October, Duggan announced that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer and by December, had announced he was cancer free. Duggan additionally fought kidney cancer during his time in WCW in the late 90s.
