Willie Revillame confirms he’s negative for cancer: ‘Health is wealth’

Willie Revillame happily confirmed that he has tested negative for cancer, four days after revealing that his doctors found polyps in his stomach and colon.

On Monday, March 28, the TV host-actor announced the good news that the polyps are benign during the live episode of his variety show “Wowowin.”

“Sabi niya, ‘O, Willie, kumusta ka? Sobra kang magdasal. Good news, negative ka sa cancer!’” he spoke of an earlier conversation with his doctor.

“Thank you, Lord! Thank you! Maraming-maraming salamat ho sa lahat ng mga nagdasal para sa akin,” he addressed the viewers.

Willie admittedly felt anxious about the cancer scare, especially the night before receiving the confirmation from his doctor.

“Sabi ko nga, I’m ready. If worse comes to worst, o-operahan ako, puputulin ‘yung bituka ko, ready naman ako,” he confessed. 

When Willie first spoke of the polyp findings on the March 24th episode of “Wowowin,” he revealed that he underwent a colonoscopy test which made him unable to perform freely.

“Meron akong stapler kaya di ako makasayaw at makakanta. Nagkaroon ako ng colonoscopy, endoscopy, sa heart, lahat. Merong nakita polyps sa ‘kin, isa sa colon at isa sa stomach. Medyo malaki po, one centimeter ‘yung sa stomach at ito po ay, sana ‘wag naman, pero prone yata po ito sa cancer.” 

According to Willie, he would have had to take a leave from the show for at least two weeks in the event the polyps were found to be cancerous.

Now that he’s out of the woods, Willie encouraged the public to get regular check-ups for their own health, then thanked those who sent him well wishes.

“Masarap pong mabuhay na ikaw ay healthy,” he said. “Health is wealth. Aanhin mo ang materyal na bagay kung ikaw ay may dinadalang sakit?”
