Beyoncé and Solange's Father Reveals Breast Cancer Diagnosis
Published Oct 02, 2019Beyoncé and Solange's father, Matthew Knowles, revealed that he was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
The 67-year-old made the announcement on Good Morning America this morning, explaining that he underwent treatment over the summer.
"I'm doing really good, Michael," Knowles told host Michael Strahan. "I had my surgery the last week of July, and now I'm doing all the stuffs for recovery."
He revealed that he first got examined and diagnosed after finding spots of blood on his shirt and bed sheets.
Knowles also said his first reaction was to call his family and tell them about the diagnosis.
"That was the very first call, because this is genetics," he said. "It also means that my kids have a higher chance, a higher risk. Even my grandkids have a higher risk. They handled it like they should — they went on and got the test."
In addition to receiving surgery over the summer, Knowles said he's also taken additional steps to improve his health, like exercising and cutting out alcohol.
