Former Scotland winger Kenny Logan has revealed he has been treated for prostate cancer. The 50-year-old said the diagnosis had come out of the blue and he had surgery earlier this year. Speaking to BBC Breakfast, he recalled: “I got a wellness check and sat down with the guy. He said to me: ‘Everything’s fine, your hormones are fine but your prostate is high’.

“I got checked and very quickly, within three or four months, I had biopsies. There was something there but we would just keep an eye on it.

“This year, on February 7, I was diagnosed with prostate cancer which was a huge shock. I ended up deciding to take it out so I’m three months since the operation, had the prostate out and I’m probably 95 per cent back to normal.

“It was hard because when you are told you have got cancer… I didn’t see it coming. No symptoms whatsoever.”
