The two-time World Championship runner-up revealed he had the condition in May and after recovering from his chemotherapy is itching to get back following a battle against testicular cancer.

The 34-year-old also suffers from Crohn's disease and almost contested a full season in 2013/14, ending at the World Championship in Sheffield when he beat Xiao Guodong in the first round before bowing out to eventual champion Mark Selby in his next match.

He used his Twitter account this morning to indicate his positive attitude towards recovery and a return to snooker action.

"Hi people, not been on here much, been busy getting myself better! I have now finished my chemotherapy and things are really positive!" he tweeted.

"I'm feeling much better and it won't be long till I'm back playing again!! Missed it big time..#perspective #beatingcancer"

Carter is a three-time ranking tournament winner, having landed titles at the 2009 Welsh Open, 2010 Shanghai Masters and 2013 German Masters. He lost to Ronnie O'Sullivan in each of his Crucible finals, in 2008 and 2012.
