LONDON: Rod Stewart has been given the all-clear after battling prostate cancer, the British pop stalwart has revealed.

The 74-year-old, who released his 30th studio album last year, told the audience at a weekend prostate charity fundraiser that he was diagnosed two years ago.

The raspy voiced singer said he received positive news about remission in July following treatment, according to Britain´s Daily Mirror.

"Two years ago I was diagnosed with prostate cancer," Stewart told the audience at the event in Surrey, southwest of London, it reported.

"No one knows this, but I thought this was about time I told everybody," he added.

"I´m in the clear, now, simply because I caught it early. I have so many tests."

The father-of-eight, who appeared at the event with former Faces bandmate Ronnie Wood -- who was previously diagnosed with lung cancer -- urged men to have their prostates checked regularly.

"Guys, you´ve got to really go to the doctor."
