Today host Al Roker reveals prostate cancer surgery is 'done' as famous weatherman returns 'back home'

TODAY's Al Roker revealed that his "prostate cancer surgery is done" as he told his fans he is "back home."

The famous weatherman previously revealed he was diagnosed with "aggressive" version of the disease.

The 66-year-old took to Instagram to share two photos alongside his wife, Deborah Roberts, and their son, Nicholas

He captioned: "Relieved to let you all know that my #prostatecancer surgery is done and back home.

"A big shoutout to everyone at the #josierobertsonsurgerycenter and so appreciate all the thoughts and wishes from our viewers and the wonderful care packages from my co-workers. Hope to see you all soon."


People were loving the post as they took to the comments section to reply.

One person wrote: "Praying for you! You got this," as another chimed in with, "You rest & get well soon 🙏 💙 Thanks for the update."

On the November 6 episode of the popular NBC morning news show, the TV personality revealed to his coworkers and his viewers of his cancer diagnoses.


He said: "It's a good news, bad news kind of thing.

"Good news is we caught it early. Not-great news is that it's a little aggressive, so I'm going to be taking some time off to take care of this."

He continued: "It's one of those things, it's a little more common than people realize."

Al also made sure to remind fans of how important it is to learn about his cancer.

He explained: "If you detect it early, this is a really treatable disease.

"And it's why I wanted to take you along my journey, so we can all learn together how to educate and protect the men in our lives.

"I don't want people thinking, 'Oh, poor Al,' you know, because I'm gonna be okay."

Al, who has been with the Today Show for over 24 years as their official weatherman, has confronted many health scares in the past including a back operation, emergency carpal tunnel surgery, and even a hip replacement.

He and his wife share two kids, daughter Leila, 22, and son Nicholas, 18.
