An upbeat John Kruk left a Philadelphia hospital Wednesday night after learning lumps on his body are apparently not connected to his testicular cancer earlier this year. "It ain't cancer," the Philadelphia Phillie star said as he walked between buildings at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Dr. Carl Mansfield, chairman of the department of radiation oncology and nuclear medicine, said there was a "99 to 100% likelihood that John does not have a recurrence of cancer."

John Kruk, who powered the Philadelphia Phillies to the National League pennant last season, had a testicle removed that was later found to be cancerous. Kruk, 33, will face further tests to determine if the cancer has spread. However, it is believed the cancer was confined to the testicle. If there is no spread, team physician Phillip Marone said Wednesday, Kruk can expect a full recovery.
