Viaplay commentator Kasper Wikstad will reportedly undergo surgery at the Rikshospitalet in Oslo on Tuesday. VG Monday.
In 2020, Wikstad underwent surgery for bowel and kidney cancer. Now the liver is being attacked by what is called metastasis.
It is described as a “daughter tumor” – the spread of a cancerous tumor to other parts of the body.
“It was a tough fall, because I knew something was wrong, but not what,” Wikstad admits, after a CT scan, CT scan of the liver or MRI of the liver provided no answers this fall. But the mystery has now been solved, and Wikstad is, after all, happy that he finally has an answer – and that the process is being carried out as quickly as it is happening now, Wikestad tells VG.
The commentator’s profile was on Viaplay as recently as Sunday, when he commented on the Arsenal vs. Manchester City match.
Wikstad has been a prominent Premier League commentator for several years and previously worked for TV 2.
After having cancer surgery in 2020, he goes for a routine CT scan once a year. This is how the “daughter’s tumor” was discovered.
In 2020, he had to undergo a very complex surgery as a result of his cancer, but this time it will be a simpler operation, as he himself says.
He is now on sick leave and will be away from the screen for a little less than a month.
