For those who are in a shock after hearing the news of Irrfan Khan's medical condition, let us tell you that it is nothing related to brain cancer or a tumour as some might call it.
In a statement posted on Twitter earlier today, Irrfan announced that he is suffering from a NeuroEndocrine tumour which if medically put is as a rare condition that can occur anywhere in the body. Most neuroendocrine tumours occur in the lungs, appendix, small intestine, rectum and pancreas. They can be non-cancerous or malignant.
In Irrfan's case, we don't know the stage of the condition he is suffering or whether it is malignant or not. Read his full statement here.
