London - Former England batsman Michael Carberry has been diagnosed with cancer, his county side Hampshire announced on Thursday.
The 35-year-old, who played the last of his six Tests in 2014, consulted a specialist on Tuesday after sitting out this week's county championship game against Warwickshire because he was feeling unwell.
"Following recent reports about his health and now that he has spoken fully to his family, friends and team-mates, Hampshire Cricket can confirm that after a brief period of feeling unwell, a specialist has determined that Michael Carberry has a tumour that is cancerous," read a statement from Hampshire.
"Further tests will be undertaken before the relevant treatment commences."
Carberry previously suffered from ill health in November 2010 when he had blood clots on one of his lungs.
