Further, elaborating on the issue, Woods also shared his conversation with Dr. Oz to inform the viewers about prostate cancer and how to deal with it.
Regarding the fact that prostate cancer ran down in his family when his grandfather, father, and uncle had already lost their lives to the disease, Woods knew the possibility of it coming for him as well sooner or later. And this is why the meteorologist got himself checked regularly and prepared himself before it was too late.
Despite his incredibly fit health conditions with the minimum risk factors to contribute to the disease, genetic factors, however, caught him off-guard just when he had turned fifty.
