Ski champion Svindal is operated on for testicular cancer
OSLO, Norway (AP) — Two-time Olympic ski champion Aksel Lund Svindal has undergone surgery after being diagnosed with testicular cancer, the Norwegian said Saturday.
“I felt a change in my body. I wasn’t sure what it was, or if it was anything. But I decided to get it checked out. I went to see a doctor and I was quickly (transferred) to the hospital where they confirmed what the doctor suspected Testicular cancer,” Svindal wrote on Instagram, along with a photo of himself in a hospital gown.
