According to a post published by Michael Irvin on his Instagram account, the Hall of Famer does not have throat cancer.
Irvin posted about undergoing a biopsy test at a Los Angeles hospital on Tuesday, but has since announced his tests came back “100% clean.”
Irvin wrote about losing his voice nearly two months ago after he cheered on the Dallas Cowboys during their 13-10 win over the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 29. That’s when doctors suggested he should schedule a throat biopsy.
The post reads,
“Thank you God for continuing to answer Prayers and Thank you ALL for Praying. I spoke with Dr St John at UCLA Medical and she has informed me that all test have come back 100!% clean. NO CANCER!!!!!! It is impossible to express my family and my appreciation for the overwhelming out pour of love, support and prayers. I was on my threshing floor dealing with the stronghold of fear. You all covered and encourage me. To God be the Glory.”
Former Cowboys running back Emmitt Smith posted about the good news on his Instagram account also.
