LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Ryan O'Neal says the prognosis is positive for his recovery from recently diagnosed Stage 2 prostate cancer.
The 70-year-old actor said in a statement released through his publicist on Monday that he was "shocked and stunned by the news" but feels fortunate the disease was caught early. He says he's expected to make a full recovery.
A memoir about his romance with actress Farrah Fawcett, Both of Us: My Life With Farrah, will be published on May 1. Fawcett died in 2009 after a public battle with cancer.
