Some Instagram users speculated that Polo boy had been diagnosed with cancer. But their comments were later deleted by the social media star. It is highly likely that the cancer scare is just a prank. A report on Distractify revealed that this was perhaps a trick played by Polo Boy’s management team to boost the engagement on his videos.

The 17-year-old social media star posted many stories on his Instagram handle on September 4, where he is seen hanging out with his friends and having a blast. Polo Boy is a part of two highly popular TikTok groups named OT House and the University of Diversity, but none of the members from the groups posted anything related to the cancer speculations.
