Former England cricketer Allan Lamb treated of prostrate cancer

Former England cricketer Allan Lamb has been undergoing treatment for prostate cancer.

The 67-year-old revealed the news on Twitter and urged other people to get tested.

South Africa-born Lamb played 79 Tests and 122 one-day internationals for England between 1982 and 1992.

I urge all men to go and get their PSA levels checked as prostate cancer so often goes undiagnosed. Having recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, I have just completed a month of treatment. Put your egos aside-don’t be ignorant about your health @Vitality_UK @ProstateUK

He scored 4,656 Test runs with 14 hundreds, 18 half-centuries and a top-score of 142, which came against New Zealand in Wellington in 1992.

Lamb played in three 50-over World Cups for England, while his domestic career spanned from 1973 to 1995 and included an 18-year spell with Northamptonshire.

One in eight men in the UK are affected by prostate cancer, with one dying every 45 minutes, but, as yet, there is no comprehensive national screening programme to highlight how aggressive a person’s cancer may be.

The Bob Willis Fund, which was co-founded by Bob’s wife Lauren Clark and his brother David Willis, aims to support critical research into prostate cancer.
