Misogynistic influencer Andrew Tate has denied he has cancer after confirming last week that he has a “dark spot on his lung.”
In its latest update to his millions of Twitter followers, Tate’s account said the scar on his lung “is from an old battle” after the medical details were released last week.
The former kickboxer is currently being held in Romania with his brother Tristan on suspicion of organized crime and human trafficking, which they deny.
‘I don’t have cancer. My lungs contain exactly 0 smoke damage. In fact, I have a lung capacity of 8 liters and the vital signs of an Olympic athlete,” the update read.
“There’s nothing but a scar on my lung from an old battle. True warriors are scarred both inside and out,” the post added in a style that has become typical of Tate’s social media posts since his detention.
Misogynistic influencer Andrew Tate (pictured Feb. 27), who is currently being held in Romania on charges of organized crime and human trafficking, has denied he has cancer after confirming last week that he had a “dark spot on his lung.”
Last week, Tate’s team told MailOnline that he attended a medical consultation with doctors in Dubai about his “serious” health condition that “should not be taken lightly” before his arrest in December.
Since his arrest, Tate has been receiving medical treatment in Romania for his medical condition – and the influencer remains “strong” and “in good shape,” his representative said Friday.
Tate’s doctors, both in Romania and Dubai, reportedly wrote in medical documents that the influencer has a lesion of his right upper lung – a condition that has been described as a “serious health condition.” His doctor said the lesion could be a sign of a carinoid tumor — a rare type of slow-growing cancer.
Tate initially confirmed the major health fears, with his spokesperson telling MailOnline: “Tate has a dark spot on his lung, most likely a tumour.”
As a result, his doctors have requested that Tate, who has been held in a Romanian prison since late December on sex trafficking charges, be released from prison so that he can be admitted. treatment in Dubai.
But on Monday morning, Tate’s Twitter account moved to quell questions about his health. His message to his five million followers came alongside a photo of a shirtless Tate striking a pose in a gym, his left leg extended to his side.
Romanian officials have said that Tate will receive any medical treatment in Romania.
Monday’s somewhat bizarre post continued in typical Tate fashion.
“As one of the most influential men on the planet, it is important to the good of humanity that I live as long as possible,” it read.
“At my current strength, I estimate I can survive for at least another 5,000 years. With this in mind, I take my medical care extremely seriously.
‘I had a regular check organized in the pre-trial detention center in Dubai. The doctors were very interested in the scar on my lung.

“They don’t understand how I survive without treatment. They don’t know the secrets of Wudan. But this battle is long over.”
The post also shared a link to a page on Tate’s website titled “Tales Of Wudan” in which he tells a fictional story of how he lived 5,000 “human years” on top of a mountain. “I remember every second lived,” the page says.
The story is accompanied by a series of photographs in the style of Japanese art, depicting a cartoon Tate undertaking “trials” and practicing martial arts.
Tate’s lawyers have previously said he will not be able to access social media while he is being held in Romania, suggesting someone else is posting on Twitter on his behalf.
Earlier this week, the Tate brothers lost their latest attempt to be released from prison, with a Romanian court upholding a third extension of their detention.
The divisive influencer will now be held for another 30 days — until at least March 29, according to Ramona Bolla, a spokesperson for the Romanian anti-organized crime organization DIICOT — while the investigation continues.
Bolla said prosecutors also won an appeal on Monday against a court’s decision last week to place two women also in the case under house arrest, rather than full custody. None of the four people under investigation have been formally charged.
The appeal was the third the brothers have lost against decisions to extend their detention while the investigation is ongoing.
A document explaining a previous decision to keep them in prison said the judge took into account the “particular danger of the defendants” and their ability to identify victims “with heightened vulnerability, seeking better life chances” .
Tate, who has been living in Romania since 2017, was previously banned from several social media platforms for expressing misogynistic views and hate speech.

He has repeatedly claimed that Romanian prosecutors have no evidence and claimed that their case is a “political” conspiracy designed to silence him.
DIICOT said in a statement following their December arrests that it had identified six victims in the human trafficking case who suffered “acts of physical violence and mental coercion” and were sexually exploited by members of the alleged crime group.
The agency said victims were lured with pretenses of love and later intimidated, placed under surveillance and subjected to other control tactics while coerced into committing pornographic acts for the crime group’s financial gain.
Since their arrest, the brothers have reportedly demanded that prison guards bring them a PlayStation and a hairdresser, the Romanian news site reports. Gandul But the pair have been turned down by officials who have rejected their demands.
