From SA:

10/14/2002. Deportivo's goalkeeper Jose Francisco Molina has been forced to temporally retire from football as he undergoes chemotherapy to fight a malignant tumour in his testicles.

Molina underwent an operation in June 2001 after discovering the tumour, but was told by doctors that it was malignant and wouldn't effect his normal life.

However, it was found on Wednesday that there was serious complications and he would need chemotherapy.

The keeper has been missing this season with a knee injury, but will now be away from football for the foreseeable future.

This is terrible news :frown: I didn't know he underwent an operation before. I hope it's not getting too serious.

That article makes no sense. Malignant tumors are bad ones, they spread to other parts of the body. If the doctors thought that it was malignant, they would not have let it go.

all the best wishes to his eventual recovery, he is indeed a great keeper, and will doubtless be missed, by both club and country.
