In a tweet, Andrew Tate informed his 5.3 million followers, “I do not have cancer. My lungs contain precisely 0 smoking damage. I have an 8L lung capacity and the vital signs of an Olympic champion.”
He ended the tweet by saying, “true warriors are scarred both inside and out”. He complimented the tweet with a picture of him stretching at the gym.
Last week, Tate’s team told MailOnline that he had attended a medical consultation with doctors in Dubai about his ‘serious’ health condition that must ‘not be taken lightly’ before he was arrested in December 2022.
Since his arrest, Tate has been receiving medical treatment in Romania for the medical condition – and the influencer remains ‘strong’ and ‘in good shape’ – his representative said on Friday.
Tate’s doctors, in both Romania and Dubai, reportedly wrote in medical documents that the influencer has a lesion of his upper right lung – a condition that has been described as a ‘serious health condition’. His doctor said the lesion could be a sign of a carcinoid tumor – a rare type of slow-growing cancer.
Tate initially confirmed the major health fears, with his spokesman telling MailOnline: ‘Tate has a dark spot on his lung, most likely a tumor.’
As a result, his doctors requested that Tate, who has been held at a Romanian prison since late December on sex trafficking charges, be released from prison so he can receive treatment in Dubai.
Tate’s lawyers have previously said he does not have access to social media while being held in Romania, suggesting someone else is posting to Twitter on his behalf.
His tweet on Monday morning moved to quell the questions about his health.
