Only Fools And Horses star Patrick Murray said his lung cancer was ‘cured’ and the tumor in his liver had shrunk.

The 65-year-old actor had a CT scan earlier this year and discovered a lung cancer tumor in the early stages. He underwent a surgery to remove it as well as chemotherapy.

Several other CT scans found another tumor in his liver.

He had received transarterial chemotherapy (Tace), a minimally invasive procedure performed in interventional radiology to limit the tumor’s blood supply.

Sharing the health update on Twitter, Patrick explained: “Once again, thanks for all your lovely messages. As you may know, I was diagnosed with lung cancer last July.

“After surgery in October to remove the tumor, I had chemotherapy to prevent the cancer from coming back. During this chemotherapy, another tumor was discovered in my liver.

“Luckily for me this cancer is not related to lung cancer and is also treatable. I’ve got a procedure called Tace to deal with this.

“Last Friday, I saw my oncologist. She told me that my lung cancer was cured and the tumor in my liver was shrinking.

“It’s not over yet, but as you can imagine I’m on the moon with this breaking news.”

He went on to thank the ‘excellent’ NHS doctors and nurses for all they have done.

“I hope that I will be there, at next year’s conference,” he said of the annual conference Just Fools and Horses.
