Elvis Costello alluded to the nature of his cancer in a statement on his website by urging men to see their doctors if they had symptoms they were worried about.
”Seek your doctor’s advice if you are in doubt or when it is timely and act as swiftly as you many in these matters.  It may save your life.  Believe me, it is better than playing roulette.”
The 63-year-old singer, songwriter’s doctor advised him to cancel the remaining dates of his summer tour; Britain, Croatia, Austria, Norway and Sweden.
In the statement, Costello revealed for the first time he was diagnosed six weeks ago and underwent surgery.
”I must reluctantly cancel all the remaining engagements of this tour,” vowing to ”return at the soonest opportunity.”
