King Charles III has been admitted to a hospital in London.
It is reported by Buckingham Palace that the king will be treated for an enlarged prostate.
The palace released a statement informing the public of the issues the king had been facing and his plans for the future.
"In common with thousands of men each year, The King has sought treatment for an enlarged prostate. His Majesty's condition is benign and he will attend hospital next week for a corrective procedure. The King's public engagements will be postponed for a short period of recuperation," the statement from the palace read.
King Charles was only crowned last year in the wake of Queen Elizabeth II’s death.
Despite being 74 years old, King Charles has had the luxury of living a relatively healthy life with minimal ailments.
“It's not known why the prostate gets bigger as you get older, but it is not caused by cancer and does not increase your risk of developing prostate cancer,” Britain’s National Health Service reads on their website.
According to the same website, over one in three men in the U.K. will face prostate enlargement in their life.
The palace also reported that King Charles was “delighted to learn that his diagnosis is having a positive impact on public health awareness.”
No matter how you feel about King Charles, you can sympathize with the stress of a new medical condition of unknown severity.
We are happy to hear that King Charles’s condition is benign and that he is looking at the silver lining of the situation.
Like King Charles, we are happy his situation is raising awareness to others who may not know just how many men will develop an issue with their prostate.
We pray for a quick recovery for the king!
