    Scott, who anchors NFL and NBA shows, as well as SportsCenter, will undergo preventative treatments, including chemotherapy, and will miss some on-air time, though he will attempt to maintain a regular schedule.

    In a statement issued through ESPN, Scott said, "There are 28 million cancer survivors. You know what that means? We've got a strong army!! Once again, I join the fight and like 3 years ago, I plan to beat this thing. Can't tell you you how much I appreciate everyone's well wishes and support. I'll be back at work soon ... probably sooner than you think. I am blessed to have the invaluable support of a great team of doctors, my loving family, genuine friends and my ESPN family."

    Scott underwent an emergency appendectomy in 2007, at which time a malignancy was discovered. Scott had chemotherapy at that time, and it is not known if this current discovery is connected to his previous illness.

    That really sucks, i have always liked Stuart. He just does his job and gives us the news in an entertaining way but has no personal axe to grind. I hope new guys entering the business take ques from Stuart because there are too few like him now.
