Limbaugh first noticed something was wrong during the second week in January, and was confirmed to be cancer by "two medical institutions" on January 20th.

Rush Limbaugh: I've had so much support from family and friends during this that it's been tremendous. I told the staff today that I have a deeply personal relationship with God that I do not proselytize about. But I do and I have been working that relationship tremendously pic.twitter.com/dSAeZRDNBm— Wojciech Pawelczyk (@PolishPatriotTM) February 3, 2020

Earlier this month, the 69-year-old Limbaugh renewed his contract which was set to expire later in the year, for a reported four years.
PRN did not say exactly how long Limbaugh’s new contract is but noted it is a "long-term agreement." President Trump, however, broke the news of the agreement and said it was just a four-year deal during his Miami, Florida, rally on Friday.
"We have great people. Rush just signed another four-year contract," Trump said to the crowd. "He just wants four more years, okay. Rush, Sean Hannity, Laura — a lot of great people — Tucker’s been great, Fox & Friends, right?" -Washington Examiner
Limbaugh has hosted his show for 31 years.
