If you are a fan of actor Ross Marquand and follow him on social media, you know he rarely posts. If he does, it is generally something related to his work rather than something personal. His latest post is very personal, one in which he offers advice to others.

Marquand recently went to the doctor to have a spot on his nose checked, something family, friends, and fans have encouraged him to do for four years. His excuse was his schedule which has been “absolutely bonkers,” but luckily, he went when he did. The spot was found to be cancerous, although one of the “better” cancers to get, but if he had let it go on longer, it could have become something much worse.

In the post, he encourages everyone to prioritize their health, whether it be physical, mental, or emotional. He is glad he didn’t put the appointment off any longer, and now he can work on becoming healthier.

Undead Walking sends its best wishes to Ross Marquand as he recovers from the procedure to remove the cancer.

It seems that Marquand believed this was critical information to share, as his last social media post occurred in November 2022 to promote the series finale of The Walking Dead.
