Ripken had no symptoms before his routine checkup. “There was no reason for me to think I had any issues,” Ripken explained. He then saw a urologist and as a precaution, had a biopsy and cancer was detected.
On Monday, Ripken turns 60.
It goes without saying: we are all ecstatic to hear that he has made a full recovery.
