Former England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott, who once suffered from the dreaded cancer, has advised Yuvraj Singh to be optimistic while he recovers from the disease. "I would advise him to stay positive and do everything what he can," Boycott said from Dubai where he was commentating in the Pakistan-England Test match.
The legendary opener was diagnosed with throat cancer ten years ago. However, he fought the disease with great courage and survived. "Follow the instructions given by your doctor and enjoy life. You have to fight the battle where success is not guaranteed," Boycott told NDTV.
Boycott's mother, unfortunately succumbed to breast cancer. "My message to people is -- don't delay and don't think your symptoms are going to go away as if some fairy has waved a magic wand."For God's sake, follow your doctor's advice, and if you are not satisfied, then don't hesitate to consult a specialist. The sooner they detect cancer, the chances of overcoming it are better," he concluded.
