Eric Braeden, a beloved figure among fans of the daytime drama ‘Young and the Restless,’ recently divulged that he is in the midst of battling cancer and is presently receiving immunotherapy.

The 82-year-old actor, who has played the role of Victor Newman on CBS’s soap opera for an impressive 43 seasons, communicated the news via a Facebook video on Friday afternoon.

Eric stated that he would be undergoing an additional six weeks of treatment to combat the high-grade cancer cells near his bladder.

The veteran actor recounted how a urologist diagnosed him with cancer after he experienced bladder issues while recuperating from a knee-replacement surgery.

Eric described the ordeal as excruciatingly painful, but he believed that sharing his experience could help older men who might be undergoing similar struggles.

He underwent surgery to alleviate the pressure on his urethra, during which some cancerous tissue was also removed. However, a subsequent biopsy revealed that high-grade cancer cells were present.

Eric expressed surprise at the diagnosis but vowed to tackle the issue head-on.
