INXS reveals cancer battle

Published On June 30, 2015 | By Keri | Entertainment News

INXS founding member Kirk Pengilly is speaking out about his battle with prostate cancer.

The 56 year old Australian musician underwent 5 hours of surgery earlier this year after doctors told him the cancer was likely to spread to other organs if it wasn’t immediately removed.

The guitarist admitted that he’d been diagnosed with “very aggressive” prostate cancer, news he received via email while on holiday with his wife.

He got good news in April when he found out that the cancer hadn’t spread.

Pengilly said, “It will probably take 12 to 18 months for everything to be absolutely normal again.”
