Al revealed on Today that he has prostate cancer and will be having his prostate removed in mid-November.
“It’s a good news-bad news kind of thing,” Al said on the NBC morning show. “Good news is we caught it early. Not great news is that it’s a little aggressive, so I’m going to be taking some time off to take care of this.”
The 59-year-old added, “We’ll just wait and see, and hopefully in about two weeks, I’ll be back [on Today].”
