Ahmed Helmy has been suffering from cancer longer than we had imagined. Fans are now discovering that the "Made in Egypt" star had a malignant tumor while shooting the film. Stills from the movie have been circulating where his tumor is very apparent. It was said that Ahmed had known about his cancer diagnosis while filming the movie and had insisted on completing it to avoid letting his fans down and have it screened at its scheduled time.
According to Al Jaras Magazine, Ahmed underwent an operation in the United States of America to have the tumor, which was 19 cm long, removed from his back. Ahmed had kept his illness a secret from everyone and only recently notified fans with the shocking and disheartening news.
Ahmed is said to be recovering from his operation and is due to return home to Egypt in the very near future.
