Jake Roberts noted on his verified Twitter account that his surgery on Tuesday went well to remove a cancerous growth from behind his knee. The following is from Twitter:
Surgery went well & feeling good. Won't know if the growth is all removed or spread until tests come back. Doc optimistic and so am I.

News broke last week that Roberts noticed a tumor behind his knee in January. He got it biopsied after seeing a doctor and it came back positive for cancer. Roberts later said it was a preliminary diagnosis of skin cancer.
