New Delhi, Feb 6 (IANS) Yuvraj Singh’s doctor Nitish Rohatgi Monday said the cricketer’s malignant lung tumour is curable and he can resume training in 10 weeks.

“Yuvraj is suffering from a rare type of seminoma (germ cell tumour). Yuvraj is not suffering from lung cancer but he has a malignant tumour between the two lungs. The term cancer is negative,” Rohatgi said at a hurriedly organised press conference here.

Rohatgi said Yuvraj shall be able to resume training in ten weeks.

“Yuvraj’s physical condition is not the same as it was this time last year but he is doing much better than other patients who suffer from the same condition. He is spending his time playing video games and going for brisk walks. He also takes the occasional jog as well. He is mentally tough and has come to terms with his condition,” he said.

Yuvraj left for the US last month and is being treated at the Cancer Research Centre in Boston.
