Bangladesh spinner Mosharraf Hossain Rubel has been diagnosed with a brain tumour.
He is suffering from glioma, a kind of tumour that starts in the glial cells of the spine or the brain.
Mosharraf will travel to Singapore for further treatment.
The experienced spinner had fainted quite a number of times after which he consulted the doctors and was informed about glioma.
He is no more a part of Bangladesh team but continues to play in Bangladesh’s domestic cricket. The Dhaka-born cricketer is confident of his recovery and is expected to be fine.
“I have applied for the visa and an appointment has been set at Mount Elizabeth Hospital in Singapore. The doctors said the tumour is at a very primary stage and successful removal should be able to cure me, Inshallah,” Mosharraf was quoted as saying in Dhaka Tribune.
Dr. Debashish Chowdhury, the chief physician of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), stated that Mosharraf has consulted them regarding tumour.
“Severity of the tumour can only be understood once the biopsy is done following the operation. So far, the reports suggest that the tumour is at a primary stage but after all, it is a tumour in the brain so it is very sensitive. It was during the BPL this year when he fainted and was advised a thorough checkup,” he mentioned.
