Country music star RANDY OWEN has confirmed he's been diagnosed with prostate cancer, but insists he's winning his battle with the deadly illness.
The Alabama frontman began treatment last month (May10) after doctors discovered the cancer during a routine check-up.
Owen underwent an ultrasound procedure in a bid to beat the disease, and he is now said to be recovering well.
The star's medic, Dr. Woody Fritz, tells, "We are happy with the successful outcome of the treatment. Randy is doing great and is just about fully recovered."
Owen, who hopes to resume touring in September (10), adds, "After my routine six-month physical... I feel very good and positive about my future. I look forward to seeing the fans and doing what I do."
