    Panthers' Lewis reveals cancer scare

    Penrith rugby league star Luke Lewis has spoken out about a cancer scare that rocked his family.

    Speaking to Nine News, Lewis said his injury sustained in Round 19 of the NRL was far worse than expected.

    A lump was discovered by accident when Lewis went for a CT scan on the back of his neck after injuring it in the match against Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium.

    Tests on the lump revealed he had thyroid cancer.

    The Panthers star underwent two operations to have his thyroid removed and was given the all clear earlier this week.

    Lewis's surgeon recommended a further five to six weeks on the sidelines after the surgery to avoid contact to the neck area.

    The 29-year-old said that he will make a full recovery and apart from having to take medication he is expected to live a normal and healthy life

    Yeah, that's right Swoop. If he only got the all clear this week, that is really ****ty on the Panthers part. Luke seems a great bloke and should have been treated with a lot more concern by the Panthers. I wish him all the luck and good health possible in his future!

    I wish him the very best, such an affable guy:angel:

    My best friend is currently in her third recurrence of thymus cancer and it is such struggle to watch her cycle through treatment, remission, and then a few years later, the new tumours.

    It truly is a struggle to the end, when the cancer is in one of the hormone producing organs:(

    I understand and feel for the bloke and hope he's alright. However, something in the back of my head says that its just a smokescreen to explain why he hasn't played for the Panthers since he announced he was leaving, and won't for the rest of the season.

    If this is the case then I think it's a dirty tactic and something the Panthers fans should feel angry about. If not, I will stand corrected.

    As I said above though, if it is true, hopefully it doesn't come back if they got it all. Thyroid cancer is a bad one to get as it can spread quickly through the body like Lymphoma.
