The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) Chief S Somnath said that he was diagnosed with cancer when India’s Aditya-L1 mission was launched into space on September 2 last year.

Although a growth in the stomach was noticed in one of the scans, it was not clearly understood.

“There were some health issues during Chandrayaan-3 mission launch. However, it was not clear to me at the time, I did not have a clear understanding about it,” Somnath said.

The ISRO chief underwent a scan on the very day Aditya-L1 mission was launched to study the Sun that detected an unexpected growth in his stomach. The diagnosis was a shock not only for him but his family and colleagues who provided constant support to him.

“It was a shock for the family. However, now I see cancer and its treatment as a solution. I was uncertain about a complete cure at the time, I was undergoing the process, Somnath said.”

S Somnath further revealed that his recovery was nothing less than a miracle as he underwent a surgery followed by a chemotherapy. He got back to his regular duties only after four days of hospitalisation and that he felt no pain on the fifth day.

“I will be undergoing regular checkups and scans. But, now I am completely cured, and have resumed my duties,” Somanath said.
