Panthers OL McDonald has testicular cancer surgery

By

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers offensive lineman Andrew McDonald says he expects to return next month for training camp after undergoing surgery in May for testicular cancer.

McDonald says doctors expect him to make a full recovery.

The 25-year-old McDonald says he didn't have any symptoms, but noticed a "bump on his skin" and met with doctors on May 19. He says he's glad he did. Doctors determined he had testicular cancer and operated the following day to remove the mass.

McDonald says "it's out and right now I should be all good." He says he'll need to return every few months for follow-up exams.

McDonald was "Player A" in the report on the Miami Dolphins' bullying scandal this year that indicated he was among those bullied.
