London: Geoffrey Boycott will undergo chemotherapy in his battle against cancer.
The former England opener, who scored 8,114 runs in 108 Tests and hit 151 first-class centuries, was diagnosed with having cancer after discovering a lump on his neck.
Subsequent tests revealed the “existence of cancerous tissue,” prompting specialists to recommend him for chemotherapy.
“After various medical tests were conducted and specialists’ opinions obtained, it has been decided that Geoffrey Boycott should undergo chemotherapy for cancer which has been diagnosed as situated in the area based at the rear of the tongue,” a spokeswoman said Friday. (AP)
