Nene Tumor Malignant But Full Recovery Likely

Nene Denver Nuggest Testicular Cancer

Finally some good news for Nene - his testicular cancer didn’t spread.

The DENVER POST reports that a tumor found on the Denver Nugget was malignant - contradicting earlier reports that the tumor was benign.

Luckily, the cancer “was isolated and did not spread,” and the tumor was removed during surgery on January 14. Nene is currently recovering in Denver, and there’s no timetable set for his return.

If Nene wants some sports perspective on his ordeal, he can always chat with Jeanne Zelasko and Stuart Scott about their experiences.
