On Wednesday, a day before starting cancer treatment, Chris Evans said some strong remarks.
The 57-year-old presenter confirmed his skin cancer diagnosis this month, eight years after being given the all-clear following a prostate cancer scare in 2015.
He also revealed that a mark on his calf would be removed on September 14.
On Wednesday, the actress posted an upbeat photo to Instagram with the caption, ‘Struggle ends where thankfulness begins.’
Chris smiled from ear to ear while posing next to a river at dusk in the shot, implying he’s feeling upbeat about the treatment.
Chris previously stated that the cancer was discovered in its early stages and that he was sure of a complete recovery.
Explaining the mark would be removed on September 14, Chris said: ‘It’s as treatable as cancer can be to the extent that they call it “stage zero”,’ according to BBC.
The adoring father further said that despite initially noticing a strange mark on his skin, he was unconcerned.
The broadcaster added that his masseuse advised him to have a freckle on his leg evaluated by a specialist after he claimed his pale skin was ‘covered with freckles’.
Chris revealed further information about his diagnosis and the tale of how his atypical freckle was discovered during a TalkTV interview with Mike Graham.
He explained: ‘The lady who did my massage spotted this mark on my left calf six weeks ago and she said, “Have you noticed this before?”
‘She said, “I think you should get it checked out. I don’t think it’s anything, but you know I see a lot of this, this is what I do for a living, I look at people’s skin, I’m in contact with them all the time” and she said, “I’ve seen a few things over the years and that’s something you might want to get checked out”.’
Due to his freckle-prone complexion, he ignored the warning, and it wasn’t until he returned for a second massage and she encouraged him to get it checked out that he decided to see a doctor.

The host continued: ‘The next Friday I went back and she said, “What did they say about the freckle?” I said I didn’t go, and she gave me this different look, more maternal look.
‘I think I was going to do something about it anyway, but she gave me a look just six days after the first time. She said, “Do it for me. Go and get this checked out” and I thought, “Yeah absolutely of course I will”.’
