TOKYO (TR) – Adult video (AV) star Yuma Asami announced on Monday that she has completed six treatments for ovarian cancer, adding that she is on the road to recovery, reports Tokyo Sports (Aug. 26).

The 26-year-old Asami (@asami_yuma) said on Twitter that she is suffering from side effects, such as hair loss and a reduced ability to produce blood cells in her bone marrow. “But my physical condition is fine!” she wrote.

Asami began suffering from stomach problems in January. A subsequent MRI exam revealed that she had ovarian cancer.

In February, the actress had surgery to remove a tumor — classified as being between malignant and benign — in one of her ovaries. Doctors also removed her uterus and ovaries.

Asami thanked all of her fans for their continued support. She also announced that she will be making a live appearance on Monday at 10:00 p.m. on SkyPerfecTV’s channel BAZOOKA!!!.
