“Doctors said it could be good or it could be evil. They said that in any case it is necessary to have surgery. I went to Germany for a consultation. The doctor looked at the MRI and said he agreed with his Moscow colleagues. “– said the actor in the studio of the program “Stars met” on NTV.

According to the artist, he was diagnosed with astrocytoma – a glial tumor of the brain arising from astrocytes (cells of the accessory tissue of the brain). The man managed to overcome the disease.

“I respected my illness, I accepted it. I did not lose a healthy irony. And partly because of my sense of humor, I overcame this disease. And when I am asked if I have had stellar disease, I answer: “Of course! Astrocytoma: oncocells in the form of stars »»– the actor jokes.

Roman also told why he hid the cancer. “I was afraid of spectators, fans. People are different, they are evil. He was afraid of reaction, so he didn’t tell anyone. Family, relatives and colleagues in the shop knew about it. Because it’s very hard to explain that I need a wig and more time for makeup to close the scar after surgery. “– Popov told.

The birth of a daughter was a great stimulus for recovery March. In all, the Popovs have three children.
