An announcement that was a surprise, in a way unexpected. Aksel Lund Svindal took advantage of the power of social media to reveal to everyone, publicly, through a post on his Instagram account, that he has testicular cancer. Former alpine ski championretired permanently in 2019 and boasting two general World Cups on the bulletin board, two Olympic gold medals and five world cups, he revealed it all, talking above all about prevention and attention when changes occur in our body.

Svindal spoke to everyone with the latest updates on his condition. Luckily he is fine and this announcement came after participating in the Trento Sports Festival along with Dominik Paris blue. “The last few weeks have been different. – so begins your long post – I felt a change in my body and wasn’t sure what it was, or if it was anything. But I decided to get tested and went to a doctor, before being quickly transferred to the hospital, where they confirmed what the doctor suspected: Testicular cancer”.

Svindal’s tale is a mixture of disbelief and punctuality. Yes, because the 39-year-old Norwegian also released an important message of prevention for all. “I am very grateful to the public health system in Norway – explained – Thanks! Thanks! But it’s the first good decision I want to talk about now.”. Svindal explains everything that happened in those exciting moments and how the decision to be examined immediately came about. “Tests, exams and surgeries happened very quickly – wrote Svindal – And already after the first week I knew that the prognosis was very good. All thanks to the first decision to go to the doctor as soon as I suspected something was wrong.”

The former ski champion adds: “Did you know that testicular cancer is the most common type of cancer in men under 50? And that it’s not uncommon for patients to be young in their twenties. – explains trying to make everyone understand what the procedure is to follow in case someone is in the same situation – I didn’t know, but now I know. What I also know is that men are not good at talking about health issues. And sometimes that’s exactly what you need to do to gain knowledge, whether it’s to make that good decision to see a doctor.” Fortunately, everything is going well and Svindal has shown that he is once again champion in this very personal battle.
