[ # ] James Michael Tyler reveals he has stage 4 prostate cancer
June 21st, 2021 under Friends (cast), Sick Bay

Everyone has been talking about the Friends reunion for the last few weeks. However, there is someone else from the show we should have been talking about.

James Michael Tyler sat down with Today today, and he shared with them that he has stage 4 prostate cancer. The actor, who played Gunther on the sitcom was diagnosed in 2018.

Since then, it has spread to his bones. Over the last year, it caused several bones in his back to break. Due to the broken bones, he is no longer able to walk.

In fact, Tyler revealed he is terminal. Something that didn’t need to be the case had his doctors been taking his PSA count when they drew blood and had he gone to the doctor sooner for a check-up.

He is coming forward with his story now because he is hoping that talking about it, it can save at least one man’s life.

My father was diagnosed with prostate cancer via a PSA test. After several rounds of radiation, he was cured. Prostate cancer is one of the most curable cancers if it is caught early.

So men, go to your doctors and ask them to test your PSA number with your blood. It can save your life. Us, women, deal with your little pricks; you can deal with this one every six months.

Let’s all say a prayer for James.

A friend had a blood test done every year. Since the doctor never said anything, he assumed his prostate PSA was okay. This year he asked what the number was, and the doctor said they don’t check PSA.

So, he had it checked, it was high, and he has prostate cancer.

LESSON: it’s your goddamn responsibility to know your PSA. Get it tested yearly, write down the number, see if it goes up. You catch the cancer, you live, you win. Don’t catch it and goodbye.

Thank you for sharing that important tip. We need to be more proactive with our doctors. Especially with something as simple as a blood test.

His wife is a former coworker of mine & she is so nice. I met him a few times at our yearly holiday parties…he was always very polite.
