Yuvraj battling non-malignant tumour

ESPNcricinfo staff

Yuvraj Singh, the India allrounder, had asked the BCCI not to consider him for selection for the ODI series against West Indies because he has been recovering from what his family has called an "illness that threatened his career," caused by an "abnormal tumour" on his lung. The tumour has been found, after tests, to be non-malignant.

According to a statement released by his mother, Shabnam Singh, Yuvraj had been troubled by bouts of coughing and vomitting during the 2011 World Cup but had ignored the problem during the tournament, "assuming it was due to stress."

When the problem persisted after the World Cup, Yuvraj sought medical advice and tests revealed "a golf-ball sized" growth on his left lung, the statement said. Initial reports had suggested that Yuvraj "had what in medical terms is called an abnormal tumor called lymphoma. The danger was, we were told, that it could be malignant."

Early medical treatment and therapy led to Yuvraj feeling better than he did during the World Cup and he "was eager to resume his India duties." However, after returning from the tour of England due to a finger injury sustained during the Nottingham Test, Yuvraj went through several rounds of tests, scans and a recent biopsy in order to ascertain the exact nature of the tumour. "Further reports have indicated that the tumour is non-malignant and non-threatening and can be treated through proper medication and therapy. In medical terms, Yuvraj is now in a much better state and on his way to a full recovery."

Yuvraj had informed the BCCI president N Srinivasan of the findings and wanted to regain his fitness. It was why he had "sought some more time ... and asked not to be considered for selection in the one-dayers versus West Indies."

In the statement Yuvraj's mother said he "did not want to rush things, wants to be 100% fit before resuming his cricket for India and has started working hard on both his fitness and his cricket. He is already preparing himself to play the one-day series in Australia."

Yuvraj was not included in the Test squad for the tour of Australia.

    Health is more important than career. Can't understand why did Yuvraj make himself available for the recent test series against West Indies. Good news is that his tumor is benign, but it still has got to be treated. He should not play cricket till the time he is not 100% ok health-wise & fitness-wise too. Opportunities will come plently once he is fully fit. Yuvraj, we pray for your speedy recovery.

  • on November 27, 2011, 14:47 GMT

    Sad indeed. Often we make comments w/o knowing full details. It makes sense to temper one's criticism or praise, especially the former.

    Cricketers have a life to live beyond the boundary but we know very little of it except when media chooses to report some juicy items for gossip.

    Let us wish Yuvraj a speedy recovery from his ailment.

    Lymphoma is malignant tumor only. Maybe what she means is it is a form that can be cured. Hope he responds to treatment and gets back to normal

  • ToTellUTheTruth on November 27, 2011, 2:17 GMT

    Sorry to hear this son. It is good that it was found and found to be non-malignant. Trust me. That is the best news one can hope for, for having survived my spouse's breast cancer and my father-in-law who passed away due to a similar issue, but found to be malignant. All the best and my prayers are with you for a speedy and full recovery.

  • Iyer on November 26, 2011, 23:35 GMT

    I wish speedy recovery. I would never want yuvraj to play test match, however, I like him to play ODI's and T20's for India.

  • Dravid_Pujara_Gravitas on November 26, 2011, 23:34 GMT

    Dear Yuvraj Singh, one more point, whether India needs you or not (yes, of course India needs you) is not as important as having a good physical and mental health. You can work on your comeback once you've dealt with your ailment. Take care my friend. God bless you and your family. I wish you a very speedy and a complete recovery. I'm very glad that it isn't Cancer and so are millions of Indians and fans across the globe. Stop smoking if you can. Or at least cut it down. Or take the help of Chantix (Varenecline). Take the right decisions bro. You will, of course, come out of this ailment successfully. But this is the right time to get rid off your smoking, I guess. Just a thought from your admirer from across the globe. Thank you for the 2011 World Cup, Mr. Yuvraj Singh. Most of us are indebted to you for our entire lives. You changed the facial expression of a billion people on one fine night, April 2nd 2011. Your place in Indian Cricket is set in stone, forever!

    As far as I know lymphoma is cancer and commonest nonmalignant lymphadenopathy in lungs are probably tubercular in origin. My best wishes.

  • DocBindra on November 26, 2011, 23:00 GMT

    Yuvi wishing you all the best, everyone is pulling for you. As I always say, there are things that are way more important than the game we all love so much but its still a game. Get well and be symptom free and lead a long healthy life first. Once you get healthy, play some amazing limited overs cricket because that is your true forte and calling.

  • Unmesh_cric on November 26, 2011, 17:08 GMT

    A lot of people do not give Yuvraj enough credit. If not for Yuvraj, we wouldn't have won the 2007 T20 World Cup and the recent ODI world cup. He is our world cup hero! Down the years, Yuvraj will be remembered as one of the best cricketers India has produced. Get well soon Yuvi...Team India needs you.

  • Yolk_Eater on November 26, 2011, 14:54 GMT

    thank god it is not malignant. i fear to think of that situation

  • HarishVS on November 26, 2011, 14:49 GMT

    May be this was also hampering him to get it right his batting in those two tests against WI that he failed and India won. Persistently the ball kept hitting him in his upper parts of the body including that badly bruised wrist, etc by those "bodyline" bowing by WI quicks not forgetting the injuries he sufferred in that disastrous England tour. He is going thru the worst period of his career with never ending injury and health problems. He definitely belongs to the coveted bracket of some of the best ever batsmen to have played ODI cricket. I wish him speedy recovery and all the best when he resumes his ODI career for India in Australia!

  • on November 26, 2011, 14:35 GMT

    Yuvi take care of your health.U have already done all indians proud by playing a vital role in 2011 world cup victory.U r only 29 and have another 71 years life in you.So please take care of your health.

  • on November 26, 2011, 14:24 GMT

    A one-day series without yuvi is very much out of question....get well soon...uncountable hands have raised 2 pray 4 the one of the most deserving candidate of the Indian ODI side..and after all an awesome human...luv u YUVI..!!

  • on November 26, 2011, 14:23 GMT

    Yuvi may God help u & make sure that u return to Indian Test Squard sooner than later as its permanent memberat no.6 position becoz when u are on song i fr a moment forgets every other batsman of the world while watching u, the way u dominates the game in batting more often than not gives me emmence pleasure, i cherish ur beautiful Cover drives, Cuts, Pulls, Powerful leg glances & Exceptional lofted hits bending on the knees either on spinner or pacers. I really wanna see a confident & fully fit Yuvraj Singh at no. 6 slot on Boxing Day Test at MCG bt God had sum different planning. So don't mine this time bt make sure that U once again becom Man of Series in Tri-Series in OZ with highest run getters of tournament with sum wickets specially of Ponting, Jayawardene, Sanga & Hussey brothers under ur Kitty. Hopes fr the best........

  • NRI- on November 26, 2011, 14:23 GMT

    Sad. Did he play the 2 tests against WI when unwell? Wrong, he should have opted out, not only for the sake of thr team but for himself - his last chance at a test career is now gone. I hope he recovers well. Cricket is just a game. But really, he is not in India's best XI even for ODIs anymore.

  • on November 26, 2011, 14:23 GMT

    Get well soon yuvi....! team inda needs you ..

    India needs to pray for Yuvraj. Not because he can extend his career (that is secondary) but because he needs to be able to lead a healthy life.
