"The King is grateful to his medical team for the quick intervention made possible by his recent hospital surgery. He is still quite positive about his treatment and hopes to return to full public work as soon as possible," the statement said.

It is noted that the monarch decided to share his diagnosis to prevent speculation. He also hopes that this can contribute to public understanding of all those who suffer from cancer around the world.
