Sir Rod Stewart has revealed he is "in the clear" after battling a very secret prostate cancer diagnosis.

During a Saturday performance at ­Prostate Project and European Tour ­Foundation event in Surrey, the 74-year-old singer let the audience in on his health struggle.

Two years ago, I was ­diagnosed with prostate cancer

Stewart continued, "No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody." Stewart then gave an update on his condition, which fans will likely be relieved to know. 

"I'm in the clear now, simply because... I caught it early," he said. "Guys, you've got to really go to the doctor." Stewart recommended keeping an optimistic outlook while counting his own blessings.

"If you're positive, and you work through it, and you keep a smile on your face... I mean I've worked two years and just been happy," he said, "and the good Lord looked after me."

Previously, Stewart has battled thyroid cancer in the past where he feared he might never get his voice back.
