Al Roker was diagnosed on Sept. 29th shortly after getting a physical. His doctor noticed he had a high prostate-specific antigen (PSA) after getting the results of his blood tests. Roker went on to get an MRI and a biopsy before he was officially diagnosed.
Since then, his mission has been to educate other men about getting tested.
We’re glad Al Roker is recovering quickly!
