"Recently I was diagnosed with stage 4 prostate cancer," O'Neal tells People in a statement.
"Although I was shocked and stunned by the news, I feel fortunate that it was detected early and according to my extraordinary team of doctors the prognosis is positive for a full recovery, I am deeply grateful for the support of my friends and family during this time, and I urge everyone to get regular check-ups, as early detection is the best defense against this horrible disease that has afflicted so many."
O'Neal, 70, was diagnosed and treated once before for leukemia, a disease he was able to overcome in the late nineties.
