Dustin Diamond has cancer. 

His rep told the “Today” show yesterday (Thursday) that Dustin has stage four cancer and it's serious, but they don't know how serious yet.

The actor checked into a hospital in Florida earlier this week after felling pain all over his body and a general sense of unease. 

Last night his former costar Mario Lopez tweeted:

"I connected with Dustin earlier this evening and although the news of his diagnosis is heartbreaking, we remain positive that he’ll overcome this. Praying for him & his family and for a speedy recovery. God Bless."
