Benjamin Edward Meara Stiller, Born on November 30, 1965, New York City, U.S.
He was the second child of famed comedians Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara.
He is known for his roles in ‘There’s Something About Mary,’ ‘Zoolander’ and ‘Meet the Parents.’
He was diagnosed with prostate cancer at the age of 48.
He had no symptoms at the time, nor any family history of the specific disease,
He considers himself fortunate because his cancer was detected early enough to treat. And also because his internist gave him a test, he didn’t have to.
The PSA test is typically not given to men until the age of 50.
The actor and comedian went on 3-month roller coaster ride from diagnosis to cancer free.
Treatment for prostate cancer does not come without risk still, he manages to overcome this without any major side effects.
Ben Stiller actively raises awareness for the disease.
If he can do it, you can too.
