Ali Carter has revealed he is “not out of the woods yet” after being told his testicular cancer scare requires further investigation.
News of Carter’s illness was announced on July 1 with the 33-year-old undergoing an operation the following day.
The two-time world finalist said the operation had gone well and he had been advised to rest for a month, but writing on Twitter today he revealed that further treatment was on the cards following a follow-up appointment this morning.
“Further investigation is required,” Carter wrote.
“Seeing oncologist Friday now to talk through treatment options. So not out the woods yet!
“But staying positive and a big Thank-you to all my friends and followers for your continued support!”
The cancer diagnosis is a further health scare for Carter to deal with, having been diagnosed with Crohn’s disease back in 2003.
Carter, the world number 15, is a three-time ranking event winner and lost both of his world finals to Ronnie O’Sullivan.
