Sebastien Haller has completed the first stage of his treatment after being diagnosed with a testicular tumour.
The Borussia Dortmund forward complained about feeling unwell after training on Monday and immediate medical examinations detected the tumour.

Posting a picture from his hospital bed on Thursday, a smiling Haller tweeted with some positive news.
He said: “Hello everyone, I wanted to let you know that Step 1 has been completed!
“I would like to thank the @BVB (Dortmund) and the medical team who were exceptional with me.
“A big thank you also to all the nursing staff of the hospital for their support – benevolence.”
The former West Ham striker added prayer and flexed biceps showing strength emojis to the tweet.
The 28-year-old Ivory Coast international joined Dortmund from Ajax earlier this month for a reported fee of £27million.
He signed a four-year deal, after scoring an impressive 32 goals in 36 appearances in all competitions for the Dutch club last season.
Previous to that, Haller spent one and a half seasons at West Ham, making over 50 appearances, before the Hammers sold him to Ajax for £20.25m in January 2021.
Dortmund quote tweeted Haller’s message and said: “Always a smile on his face…get well soon Seb!”
West Ham also replied to their former player’s tweet: “We’re all with you, Seb!”
