Early Signs and Treatment

Knowles said that he noticed a recurring red dot of blood on his shirt and sheets that caused him to think something was wrong. He went and had a mammogram, which revealed his breast cancer.

Knowles had surgery last July and is currently in treatment. He’s also started exercising and meditating and stopped drinking to help improve his health. He says he will get his second breast removed in January to help reduce his risk.
