Rosamund Kwan Releases Statement: “I Do Not Have Cancer”

Retired Hong Kong film actress Rosamund Kwan (關之琳) released a statement to clarify a false media report claiming that she lived with a brain tumor in the last 20 years.

The report claimed that the 51-year-old had been suffering from a small tumor in her pituitary gland for the last 20 years. The report stated that Rosamund discovered the benign tumor in 1994 at 32 years old and has been taking medication to control it ever since. The alleged state of her health condition was discovered after Rosamund was spotted seeing an oncologist.

On September 9, Rosamund clarified that she does not have a brain tumor and only received a teeth cleaning at a dental office. She was puzzled as to how claims of her brain tumor came about.

Despite her clarification, initial news about Rosamund’s tumor continued to spread. On September 17, Rosamund released a statement to clear any misunderstandings regarding her health situation. “Recently, reports claiming that I have cancer have been surfacing online, WeChat, and other social media sites. It is entirely false. I am well; I do not have cancer. I hope the media will immediately stop reporting this false information. Otherwise, I will reserve the right to pursue legal action. This is of great annoyance to me. I am thankful for everyone’s concerns at this time.”
