The actor then went to a specialist who then later concluded that the mole seems okay, however the specialist proceed to suggest on getting it checked by a surgeon. 

Manzano talked about on how the word “biopsy” is something that a person wouldn’t often hear and that even if people say that it’s “nothing,” but for him, it’s just a fact that he never thought he’d go through. 

“Kasi, if sabihin mo bigla na may kailangan kang i-biopsy, kahit sabihin mo na precautionary lang, kahit sabihin mo just to be sure, parang puwedeng cancer comes to mind o ano man.” Manzano said.

Manzano later proceed on how cancer is one of those things that you wouldn’t wish on someone even if that person is your enemy. “Ang dami kong mga kakilala na, unfortunately, nadali na ng cancer. And you see na it’s very life-changing para sa kanila. So, even if nandoon ‘yung reassurance pa rin na sinasabi nila na wala ‘yan, precautionary ‘yan, pero the fact lang na may .000001.” He added. 

Manzano kept the lump from his mother–thinking that she might end up worrying about him. He also stated that only Jessy and the housekeepers are the ones that knew about it. 

Luis later underwent the operation, removing the lump on from his head. The lump was later examined to check if the lump was cancerous. 

The biopsy later came out with the doctor later concluding that it looked okay. However, Manzano needed to undergo an additional blood test called “immunohistochemistry.”
