Kuala Lumpur, September 24: The three-time Olympic silver medallist Malayasian shuttler Lee Chong Wei was recently diagnosed with early stage nose cancer and, according to Malaysian dailies, is currently undergoing treatment in Taiwan.

The UK’s National Health Service (NHS) says that cancer of the nose is a rare type of cancer that most commonly affects men in their 50s and 60s.

Symptoms exhibited can be similar to those experienced with less serious conditions, such as colds and sinusitis, though it is recommended that anyone with unusual or persistent symptoms see a GP. These symptoms can include a persistent blocked nose (usually only affecting one side), nosebleeds, mucus draining from the nose (which may be blood-stained) and a decreased sense of smell.
