Sir Rod Stewart Confesses He's Been Secretly Battling Prostate Cancer For The Past Three Years: "I'm In The Clear Now"
Back in 2000, Sir Rod Stewart was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. The famous singer successfully beat the terrible illness, but it almost robbed him of his greatest possession – his voice.
Stewart once told Piers Morgan how terrifying the treatment was:
