In October 1996, cyclist Lance Armstrong was diagnosed with testicular cancer that had spread to his stomach, brain and lungs. He underwent immediate surgery and chemotherapy to save his life and eventually had an orchiectomy to remove his diseased testicle. While he was given less than a 40 percent survival rate, he was eventually declared cancer free in February 1997.
