Charles III goes to the hospital with a benign tumor

King Charles III of Great Britain will be hospitalized next week. As reported by Buckingham Palace, this is due to the treatment of an enlarged prostate gland, in other words, the prostate.

During a routine checkup, the sovereign was diagnosed with a benign tumor that is "treatable." This was reported by the BBC.

The 75-year-old king will undergo a "corrective procedure" in the hospital. For a short period of recovery, the monarch's public appearances will have to be postponed. It is not specified how long Charles III will recover from the treatment.

"Like thousands of men every year, the king has sought medical treatment for prostate enlargement," the journalists quoted the palace's statement as saying.

King Charles III goes to hospital with a benign tumor: what is known

It's worth noting that about one in three men over the age of 50 has symptoms of an enlarged prostate. This usually does not pose a serious health threat, but it can cause unpleasant symptoms and problems, such as difficulty urinating or emptying the bladder. This condition does not mean that the patient is at increased risk of developing prostate cancer.

This is not the first news about members of the British royal family in the hospital. Earlier, it was reported that Kate Middleton was hospitalized on January 16 and has already undergone surgery. The 42-year-old Princess of Wales underwent abdominal surgery. The official statement emphasized that, given the current medical recommendations, Catherine is unlikely to return to her duties until Easter.
