"There is nothing but a scar on my lung from an old battle. True warriors are scarred both inside and out," a tweet from Andrew Tate's account reads.

Andrew Tate remains behind bars along with his brother on suspicion of money laundering, human trafficking, and other allegations. However, new reports emerged on Friday that Tate is battling cancer in prison. The controversial personality reportedly saw a doctor in Dubai weeks before his arrest in December. His doctors in both Dubai and Romania expressed concern over a lesion on his lung and tried to book an appointment to have it removed before it spread.

As Tate’s alleged medical records circulated, his apparent manager shared a statement that confirmed the diagnosis. “Ok a lot of people are asking me if Tate lung cancer story is true. Yes it’s true, I was the one driving with him to and from the hospitals in Dubai. I don’t have any more specifics to share,” the Instagram post read as fans and detractors reacted to the news. Ultimately, the reports claim that Tate needs medical attention immediately to prevent “series negative implications” on his health.

Andrew Tate Denies Cancer Rumors

Somehow, Andrew Tate has been getting his message across the internet, despite his incarceration. Though his team claimed that he’s remained isolated since his arrest, his Twitter account remains active. Most recently, Tate addressed rumors surrounding the alleged diagnosis. “I do not have cancer. My lungs contain precisely 0 smoking damage. In fact, I have an 8L lung capacity and the vital signs of an Olympic athlete. There is nothing but a scar on my lung from an old battle. True warriors are scarred both inside and out,” the tweet reads.

However, it didn’t end there. He, once again, reiterated how influential he is and stated that his existence on planet Earth can only make society a better place. “As one of the most influential men on the face of the planet, it is important for the food of humanity that I live as long as possible,” he continued in a subsequent tweet. “At my current strength levels, I estimate to survive for at least 5000 more years. With this in mind, I take my medical care extremely seriously.” Check out his tweets above and sound off with your thoughts in the comments.
