Kenny Logan Reveals He Was Treated for Prostate Cancer
Former Scotland international and spouse of BBC journalist Gabby, Kenny Logan, has disclosed that he underwent prostate cancer treatment earlier this year.
Logan, 50, spoke about his condition on BBC Breakfast with his wife. He said that during a wellness check, he was advised to have his prostate tested because of high Prostate-Specific Antigen (psa) Levels. A biopsy later revealed that there was “something” to watch out for.
Logan emphasized that “the important thing [the consultant] stated to me was that “40% of your friends have this [something and will live with it], they simply aren’t aware of it.”
He subsequently received a prostate cancer diagnosis in February. Logan revealed that he had surgery to have his prostate removed, saying, “It was a great shock.
Logan said he was astonished by the news because he had no symptoms and claimed he was now “95%” back to normal. Logan continued, “I’m really lucky. I didn’t see it coming. I had to go hunting for it.
Between 1993 and 2002, Logan earned 70 Scotland caps. He played with Wasps for seven years, winning the Premiership with them in 2003. Logan subsequently played for Glasgow and London Scottish before retiring in 2005.
Social media users who watched Logan’s interview praised his guts for disclosing his problem in public, while others who saw it said they will schedule prostate consultations after hearing about Logan’s experience.
Prostate Cancer UK estimates that one in eight men will develop prostate cancer, with those over 50 having an even higher risk.
Gabby Logan later tweeted: “Very proud of @KennyLogan wanting to share his experiences this year. For all of you blokes who are of a certain age don’t wait for symptoms. Go get checked. #prostatecancerawarenessmonth”
Logan, who was given a dyslexia diagnosis as a child, turned to athletics for comfort. He went to Wallace High School, but he didn’t stay for the conclusion of the semester tests.
After moving to London and dating reporter Kirsty Young for three years, Logan and Young split in 1999. He wed television host Gabby Yorath in July 2001. South West London’s Kew is where the pair resides. They underwent IVF therapy, and on July 28, 2005, twins were born.
In the fifth season of the BBC celebrity dancing competition Strictly Come Dancing, Logan and his wife competed. James Jordan and Ola were Kenny and Gabby’s partners, respectively. Logan finished fifth. Gabby came in at number twelve.
Past presidents of the children’s charity Sparks include Logan and his wife. Logan and Sparks teamed up to organize Logan’s Challenge, an annual mass-participation event, in 2009.
Logan was one of 200 public personalities who signed a letter to The Guardian in August 2014 expressing their desire for Scotland to vote to remain a part of the United Kingdom in the country’s September referendum on the subject.
Logan is a fan of Rangers FC. Logan had his prostate removed in 2022 to stop cancer from spreading.
