Actor Tom Alter has detected with stage four Cancer

Tom Alter, veteran theatre, television and film actor, is currently receiving medical treatment at Mumbai’s Saifi hospital for stage four cancer. His son Jamie Alter confirmed Tom is suffering from a condition known as Squamous Cell Carcinoma, the second most common form of skin cancer. He denied the rumours that his father is not suffering from bone cancer,


The actor’s family is satisfied with the treatment Tom is receiving at Saifi hospital and hoping that he’ll react positively to the treatment in the days to come.


Speaking to the media Jamie Alter said, "We’re coping. It’s stage four cancer; it’s not bone cancer like it is being reported. It is called Squamous Cell Carcinoma and it’s a relapse of something he had last year, which unfortunately wasn’t detected until it reached a very advanced stage and the appropriate treatment is going on now. He’s under very good care here at Saifi hospital in Mumbai, and we’ve got a very good medical team on board. So right now, as a family, we’re going to ask for a bit of privacy until we can give updates about how the treatment is going. We will let the media know once we get an update on his treatment, until that please respect our privacy."


Tom Alter is best known for his performances films like Aashiqui, Shatranj Ke Khiladi, and Kranti. He is also a sports journalist with a special interest in cricket and was reportedly one of the first few media persons to have interviewed Sachin Tendulkar.
