Former England hitter Allan Lamb has been receiving treatment for prostate cancer.

The 67-year-old South African-born man said he had recently completed a month of treatment after his diagnosis.

Lamb made his testing debut for England in 1982 and played in three World Cups, scoring 4,656 runs in 79 events during his career.

By announcing his diagnosis on Twitter, he urged other men to “put their egos in” and get tested.

“I urge all men to check their PSA levels, as prostate cancer is often undiagnosed,” he said.

“Having recently been diagnosed with prostate cancer, I have just completed a month of treatment.

“Put your egos aside, don’t ignore your health.”
