Jesse has no qualms about sharing his battle with testicular cancer. Before the season premiere, he shared details about his cancer battle. He was first diagnosed when he was 24 years old and had to have one testicle removed to avoid doing chemotherapy. Unfortunately, the cancer came back the following year, forcing him to endure four rounds of chemotherapy. Luckily, he went into remission and he later joined the show. So, what's going on with Jesse Solomon's cancer scare on Summer House?

Jesse had to undergo testing to see if the cancer had come back.

Jesse went with his mother to his five-year appointment. He shared later on a phone call with West, who was with Ciara Miller at the time of the call, that the doctor found another lump in addition to the one he felt, which only raised his concerns. He tried to joke with West about it, but it was very clear that everyone, including Jesse, was extremely worried. Unfortunately, he had to wait for the results, which will hopefully be revealed on the show soon enough.

The drama in the Summer House has been loud and prevalent, and Jesse had no time to care about it, according to a recent interview he did with People. When asked about the drama between Carl and Lindsay, Jesse said, “It's just so hard to care about life things when you're just worried about your health because if you don't have the health, you don't have any of these life things." He didn't reveal anything about his diagnosis, only sharing that he is currently happy and healthy.
