Matthew Knowles History of Cancer Puts Beyonce at Risk

Beyonce Knowles and her father Matthew Knowles arrive at the UK film premiere of 'Dreamgirls,' held at Odeon Leicester Square on Jan. 21, 2007 in London, England.

Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles, is a cancer survivor.

Beyonce’s father, Matthew Knowles, is a carrier of the BRCA 2 gene mutation, but fortunately he caught it early. Matthew talked to “Good Morning America” with Michael Strahan, and opened up about his journey with the highly deadly disease.

He appeared on the show on Wednesday and shared that he’s doing much better after undergoing a necessary surgery.

“I’m doing really good, Michael. I had my surgery the last week of July, and now I’m doing all the steps for recovery.”

Evidently, BRCA, a form of breast cancer, can be passed down through a family’s bloodline. So it was important that he share his health concerns with his family. Matthew says after finding out the news, he immediately called his children. And from there, they took the news and acted fast.

It wasn’t long before they all were getting tested fro BRCA too.

“That was the very first call because this is genetics. It also means that my kids have a higher chance, a higher risk. Even my grandkids have a higher risk. They handled it like they should — they went on and got the [BRCA mutation] test.”

Page Six reports that Beyonce is already ahead of the game. She’s reportedly already started her clean bill of health by switching to a strict diet and cutting out alcohol. Her journey is documented in Homecoming.
