Prostate Cancer Quote: Robert De Niro

Robert De Niro Quote on Life

Robert De Niro was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in 2003. The cancer was detected early so he continued to live a full life ever since. Though he is not quoted specifically regarding cancer, De Niro often reflects on life as being too short, perhaps because of his father’s death from cancer in 1993 and his own brush with cancer. The following reflection could be considered valid in regard to prostate or any other cancer. 


Prostate Cancer Quote by Robert De Niro


Prostate cancer is a type of malignant tumor that occurs in the prostate which is located in men below the bladder and near the rectum. The prostate is responsible for the production of a fluid, called semen, that is expelled with sperm during ejaculation. It is a common disease among older men.

Many celebrities have been diagnosed with prostate cancer including New York Yankees manager Joe Torre, former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani, comedian Jerry Lewis, former senator Bob Dole, and retired United States Army general Norman Schwarzkopf Jr.

De Niro reminds us that life is indeed too short in this quote, “Time goes on. So, whatever you’re going to do, do it. Do it now. Don’t wait.”
