Dennis Hopper Diagnosed With Prostate Cancer

Dennis Hopper has been diagnosed with prostate cancer and will be cancelling all upcoming travel plans to focus on treatment.

"We're hoping for the best," says the 73-year-old's manager Sam Maydew, adding that Hopper through a 'special program' at the University of Southern California.

He would not provide further details on the Hopper's prognosis or current condition.

The change in plans means Hopper will no longer be able to make an appearance at an exhibition of his artwork and photography at the Australian Centre for the Moving Image in Melbourne.

Hopper is best known as an actor but few know he is also an accomplished professional photographer. He was even profiled in Home and Garden magazine as an up and coming photographer 'to watch' in the mid 1950's and is enthusiastic collector of Pop Art.

In fact, one of the first art works he owned was an early print of Andy Warhol's Campbell's Soup Cans, which he bought for just $75.

He was hospitalized at the end of September with what were described as flu-like symptoms and stomach trouble, but was out a day later and said to be doing "much better."

Hopper just recently finished shooting the second season of 'Crash'.
