The grappler known as “The Hitman” held a news conference in Calgary to talk about the surgery he received for prostate cancer.
He says it was, in his words, “really scary” when he learned he had the disease, but after successful surgery he is optimistic about the future.
Hart says he has to keep a close eye on his condition for the next couple of years, but he is 99 per cent sure he has beaten it.
He credits regular medical checkups and PSA tests for catching the cancer in its early stages.
Hart has had serious health issues before, including a significant stroke in 2002 that left him partially paralyzed, but from which he made a successful recovery.
