Mosharraf diagnosed with brain tumour
Bangladesh’s left-arm spinner Mosharraf Hossain Rubel has been diagnosed with brain tumour and he is now set to fly to Singapore for treatment.
Mosharraf, who played 5 ODIs for Bangladesh has been diagnosed with glioma, a type of tumour that starts in the glial cells of the brain or the spine.
The spinner was stunned to know about his illness last week. He is now preparing himself to fly to Singapore for the treatment.
Mosharraf revealed that he fainted a few times and then he went for a check-up. After the check-ups, the reports suggest that he has a tumour.
“I have applied for the visa and an appointment has been set at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. The doctors said the tumour is at a very primary stage and successful removal should be able to cure me, Inshallah,” he said on Sunday.
“Severity of the tumour can only be understood once the biopsy is done following the operation. So far, the reports suggest that the tumor is at a primary stage but after all, it is a tumor in the brain so it is very sensitive. It was during the BPL this year when he fainted and was advised a thorough checkup,” Debashish said.
Mosharraf will also seek some financial help from BCB as it was revealed that the treatment will cost around Tk 40 lakhs.
