2020 is turning out to be the worst year for everyone and especially for the Bollywood industry. We are getting to hear some of the most shocking news of all times. The moment we thought, that now there is nothing worse that can happen another devastating news about Sanjay Dutt broke the internet.
Last Tuesday, the news of Sanjay Dutt’s lung cancer diagnosis left everyone in utmost sorrow. After complaining of breathlessness the Sadak 2 actor was rushed to Lilavati Hospital on Saturday 8th August. As per reports in Times Of India, everyone including Sanjay assumed it to be symptoms of COVID-19, however, they persisted even after testing negative.
It was then that the actor was advised to undergo a CT Scan, followed by a PET scan and that’s when he learnt about his illness.
A source close to Lilavati hospital narrated the entire episode to TOI and said, “Upon reaching the hospital, it was detected that air entry was not happening from his right lung. A CT scan further revealed that there was fluid accumulation in his right lung (pleural effusion) accompanied by two lesions, one on each lung.”
He further added, “ Sanjay was told that it could be a bacterial infection, tuberculosis, an adverse effect of strenuous exercise wherein he might have hurt himself, or cancer. The fluid was removed, the volume was as high as 1.5 litres. A 2-day hospitalisation followed. Sanju kept asking a lot of questions especially when he was told that the extracted fluid was about to be sent for detailed diagnosis.”
Further, the hospital’s histopathology department found out that the fluid had cancer cells. Sanjay’s PET scan, too, confirmed cancer. In no time, the actor took a counselling session wherein Sanjay was confronted about his illness. He then consulted an oncologist that gave him all the details about the possible treatment.
The PK actor was given a choice of getting his treatment done abroad. Sanjay was told that at his stage, chemotherapy was the only option and no surgery can’t be performed. The doctor informed him that his chemotherapy sessions will be broken down into several cycles, depending on the line of his treatment.
This indeed is heartbreaking. We wish Sanjay Dutt a speedy recovery.
