Friends Stars Honor James Michael Tyler After His Death

Tyler, who was first diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer in Sept. 2018, shared his health news publicly in a June interview on Today.

“For my specific prognosis, it’s of course stage 4,” he told Today’s Craig Melvin. “Late stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it’s gonna probably get me. I missed going in for a test, which was not a good thing. So the cancer decided to mutate at the time of the pandemic, and so it’s progressed.”

“There are other options available to men if they catch it before me,” he shared. “Next time you go in for just a basic exam or your yearly checkup, please ask your doctor for a PSA test. It’s easily detectable.”
