India's flamboyant all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, who has returned to the game after a successful battle with cancer, yesterday said he kept the thought of relapse of the disease away from his mind

“Every survivor has this at the back of his mind. Aap ne to dara hi diya mujhe relapse bolke (you have frightened me by talking of relapse). I don’t want to think about relapse,” Yuvraj said at a programme when asked what would be his message to cancer survivors who may suffer a relapse.

Diagnosed with a stage-1 cancerous tumour in his left lung in 2011, Yuvraj had to undergo a rigorous chemotherapy regime in the US before making his international comeback in a Twenty20 match in September against New Zealand.

He said now his first priority was to perform and improve.“My priority now is my performance, how to go about my business, ... better my performance. I look forward. I am positive.”
