A cancer specialist has shared new explosive details about Kate Middleton's cancer type and treatment.

The Princess of Wales, who revealed her cancer diagnoses and preventative chemotherapy in March, kept details of her cancer type and other details private.

However, a health expert has explained Catherine's preventative chemotherapy treatment on The Royal Record podcast.

"It's a time of uncertainty. She's obviously had an operation for cancer, we were asked not to speculate what it was but it was somewhere in the abdomen," cancer specialist Karol Sikora explained while speaking to Svar Nanan-Sen and Cameron Walker.

The medical specialist went on: "It was an abdominal operation. She's having preventative chemotherapy, which is usually given for six months."

The expert added: "The reason preventive, we call it adjuvant chemotherapy, is given is to reduce the risk of the disease returning. So any cells that may have spread there's nothing to see on the scans. But if we think there's a risk of the disease returning, we give adjuvant chemotherapy."

The cancer specialist also explained how the patient can feel after and during the treatment when Cameron asked whether it was correct for Kate to say that "she has good and bad days" with her treatment.

He revealed: "The actual day of the treatments are usually not too bad. The day after you feel very tired and then it's very unpredictable."

The new details about Kate's cancer diagnosis and treatment comes after the Princess of Wales attended Trooping the Colour in her first official public appearance since Christmas in 2023.
