India and former Kings XI Punjab teammate Shanthakumaran Sreesanth said that Yuvraj was a strong character and he expected him to come back strongly.
"I believe he will recover very soon. He is a fighter and will win this battle too. He is an elder brother too me and wish and hope he will regain his health and be back in the team soon," Sreesanth said on the side lines of a programme in Kolkata.
"We all should support him. He is a strong man and I hope he gets back strong," Sreesanth added.
Yuvraj was detected with the tumour in October but his family maintained that it was non-malignant. However, the cricketer's physiotherapist Jatin Chaudhary, said that the tumour was malignant but assured that it was "100 percent curable".
The elegant left-hander has played 37 Tests and 274 One-day Internationals. The 30-year-old was adjudged the man of the series in India's 2011 World Cup triumph.
