Docherty undergoes surgery for testicular cancer

“Obviously Sam’s health remains the club’s number one priority and we will continue to support him throughout this time.”

Speaking after his ordeal, Docherty implored men to learn from his experience and get health checks regularly.

“Obviously hearing the initial diagnosis was a shock, however I feel grateful to have got onto it straight away,” Docherty said.

“Having now had the surgery, I’m grateful to hear that I’m expected to make a full recovery and will be able to resume training in four to six weeks time.

“Talking about our health and wellbeing and ensuring we get regular checks is so important, and I hope to use this as a reminder for others to look after themselves and also to support others who may be going through similar experiences.”

The Blues asked for Docherty and his family to be afforded privacy.
