Techno fought a battle with cancer and unfortunately, he lost the battle. The news of his cancer diagnosis went public in August of 2021. At that time, he shared with his followers that he had been experiencing pain in his arm in July of the same year.
The Youtuber even took some time off his YouTube channel to heal and recover and get back in good shape as he thought that it might be happening due to repetitive stress injury from gaming.
After a few days, Technoblade realised that his shoulder started swelling and he put it to down to the thought that he might have broken a bone or something so he went to the hospital.
In one of his YouTube videos, the streamer shared a personal update with his fans and went on to spill the beans on the whole scenario and said, “They performed a couple of scans and told me the reason my arm hurts is because I have cancer. That really couldn’t have gone worse.”
