David Hess diagnosed with tumor in chestOctober 13, 2021 | 12:37 PM
David Hess revealed Wednesday that he was recently diagnosed with a cancerous germ cell tumor in his chest.
Analysis: Hess shared the news on his personal Twitter account, writing: "Life has a way of throwing things you never expected to happen. About a week ago I went to the emergency room with major chest tightness and severe shortness of breath. After some scans, blood work, and time at the hospital we learned that I had a cancerous germ cell tumor sitting in the center of my chest pressing majorly against my heart and lungs. Today we got the final diagnosis and treatment plan that has chemo starting up on Monday to shrink and hopefully eradicate the tumor entirely."
