LeBron’s Cancer Scare
The rumors of a possible Swine Flu infection were overshadowed this morning as LeBron James admitted to ESPN that he had a lump removed from his jaw back in June.
James discovered the lump early last year and had to undergo numerous tests to find out whether it was cancerous or not.
“I was working with some good professionals,” he said, according to ESPN.com. “They were telling me they didn’t think it was cancer, but we had to be sure, of course.”
Thankfully, the lump was benign.
I’m surprised that this information is just coming to light now, but it’s understandable why James would want to keep it on the D-L. It’s been a bumpy year for him — first the lump, then the loss to Orlando in the NBA East Finals, and now he may have Swine Flu.
I guess even mega-superstars can have a run of bad luck.
