TV3 star Alan Huges has spoken out about his recent health scare, just months after losing his brother David to cancer.
The 46-year-old, who presents Ireland AM on TV3, also lost his sister Doreen to the same disease in 2012, and has revealed that he was worried for his own health.
“I was having some problems. I just wasn’t feeling well, and was getting stomach pains and bruising,” Alan told The Irish Sun.
“And with both my brother and sister dying from cancer I thought that’s what this is… cancer.
“I just had to put my mind at ease and get myself checked out and find out what these stomach pains were all about?
“The specialists in the hospital really put my mind at rest by telling me that only certain cancers are hereditary and could be in your genes.”
We wish Alan all the best!
