Dr. Drew Pinsky says he had his prostate removed earlier this year after discovering he had cancer.

The host of HLN's "Dr. Drew on Call" wrote Tuesday on the network's site that he returned to work in 10 days after having a robotic prostatectomy in July.

Pinsky says he's now cancer-free and the only remnants from his surgery are six small scars on his torso.

The 55-year-old TV personality and addiction specialist hosts "Dr. Drew on Call" on HLN. He previously appeared on such TV series as "Loveline," ''Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew" and "Lifechangers."

Pinsky says he's announcing his condition to raise awareness about prostate cancer among men.
