Indian cricketer Yuvraj Singh on Thursday revealed that the malignant lung tumour, for which he is undergoing chemotherapy in the Unites States, is “almost out of his system” after the first cycle of treatment.

“Got very good news from dr lawrence today! The tumor is almost way out of the system Aftr reading my todays scan !Second cycle has started,” Yuvraj, being treated at the Boston Institute of Cancer Research, wrote on his twitter account.

The 30-year-old, who went to US last month, has gone bald during the treatment, which will go on till the last week of March before the process of rehabilitation starts in April.

The dashing batsman had earlier got a message from U.S. cycling legend Lance Armstrong, whose own inspirational triumph over cancer is well-documented, wishing him a speedy recovery.

“Message from @lancearmstrong makes me feel better! Thank you lance means a lot hope we can meet,” tweeted Yuvraj.

A photo of the Armstrong’s message, posted by Yuvraj, read: “Yuvi, I want you to know that the entire LIVESTRONG team is here for you.

“We say it all the time, and truly believe in it: Knowledge is power, Unity is strength, and Attitude is everything. Please know that we are here to help you and your family in any way possible. Go Yuvi!! Livestrong.”

@ Dr.Abraham.. You said you are a Doctor. You will understand it better. Let the thoughts of cricket and the expectations from the cricketing world work as a tonic for him, expect it to give him the courage and confidence to face the challenge he is facing today. If it gives him the confidence and keeps his mind busy, lets do it! THAT'S THE PRIORITY NOW!

I think it is imperative that Yuvaraj Singh concentrates on his "health"
and not the fitness for his cricket. As a doctor, I think he has to
rethink his priorities and the cricketing world should give him his due
"a break".
