Nene's Tumor Was Cancerous

By  | 

Accoring to the Denver Nuggets, results of a biopsy performed on a small testicular tumor found on Nuggets forward Nenê indicate the tumor was malignant. Further test results show that the cancer was isolated and did not spread. Nenê underwent surgery to remove the tumor on Jan. 14.

The tumor was discovered in the very early stages and the recovery rate is extremely high. In addition, the odds of a recurrence are very small.

Nenê is doing well and is recovering in Denver.

There remains no timeline for his return to the court.
