Ben Cunnington has surgery following shock tumour discovery
North Melbourne star Ben Cunnington has had surgery after the discovery of a testicular tumour this week.
The Roos shared the awful news on Wednesday.
The tumour was found on Monday and fully removed on Tuesday.
“This has all happened very quickly, but our focus is on Ben and his family right now as they deal with this news and allow him to recover fully,” North Melbourne footy boss Brady Rawlings said.
“From the diagnosis earlier in the week up until this point, we’ve moved quickly to ensure Ben is in the right hands medically and that he and his family have the right support around them.
“We ask that everyone respects Ben and his family’s privacy as this is a private health matter.
“Due to the sensitive nature of this news, we ask that the same level of respect and privacy be afforded to Ben’s wider family, friends, teammates, coaches and staff.”
3AW wishes Ben all the best.
