Mori Shinichi, Underwent Surgery to Remove Lung Tumor

from Daily Sports Gossip published on May 11

Enka singer Mori Shin’ichi (66) who made an appearance on BS Asahi program “The Interview~ Portrait of The Top Runner” broadcasted at 10th (of May), admitted that he underwent surgery to remove lung cancer 2,3 years ago. There was a suspicion that he got a cancer but the person concerned explained through newspaper coverage, “It was found to be benign from the result of the removal”

Mori said during the program, “There was tumor in the lung and the doctor told me, ‘It’s malignant’ “. He recalled further, “We have to take it off immediately (and the surgery was decided). Eventho it went well but I was shocked to know the removed tumor was around (a pack of) cigarette big. Obviously a cancer as it’s said”

Before the surgery, Mori texted his three sons about his medical condition. The eldest son who is the vocalist of a rock band ONE OK ROCK, Taka (26) begged the doctor in the patient room, “Save my father”

Mori : When “Nobody’s Home” in the encore was over, I stared at him as he looked in my direction and bowed down. There were things happened as he got a rebellious stage, but it’s all gone. I was glad to know that he’s growing up.
