Political radio show host Rush Limbaugh gave a cancer treatment update Tuesday during his show.

The longtime talk show host revealed he had begun his third wave of cancer treatment, according to his show’s producer Bo Snerdley, known formally as James Golden.

The news comes after Limbaugh said he might share an update on his cancer treatment on May 21.

“People are asking for a health update,” Limbaugh said in a statement. “It’s been a long time since I’ve provided you with a health update. And I do these on the basis of instinctive feel. And I don’t have a schedule and a plan, okay, on this day I’m gonna update the audience on this stage. It’s all instinctive. It’s all a feel for it.” (RELATED: Rush Limbaugh Diagnosed With Advanced Lung Cancer)

“But as I’ve told you before, I’ve really tried to avoid becoming the nation’s most-listened-to cancer patient,” Limbaugh continued. “I want to be the nation’s most-listened-to radio guy, radio talk show host, the nation’s most-listened-to media raconteur and whatever. But if the feeling hits me then I will provide you one. There is updated news, and, if it strikes me at a certain point in time, I will.”

Limbaugh first revealed his cancer diagnosis in February.

“I wish I didn’t have to tell you this, and I thought about not telling anybody,” Limbaugh said on his program, NPR reported. “I thought about trying to do this without anybody knowing, because I don’t like making things about me.”

“But there are going to be days when I am not going to be able to be here because I’m undergoing treatment, or I’m reacting to treatment,” he continued.
