LONDON -- Representatives of Scottish actor Billy Connolly say he has had surgery for the early stages of prostate cancer and is also receiving treatment for the initial symptoms of Parkinson's disease.
The statement says the 70-year-old star is "fully recovered" from prostate surgery in the United States.
He is expected to continue his film and TV work, which has recently included a role in The Hobbit films.
Connolly started his show-business career as a folksinger and later made his reputation as a standup comic.
His role in the 1997 film Mrs. Brown opposite Judi Dench brought international recognition.
