Ryan O'Neal just revealed he's battling three different cancers and he's ready to die if that's his destiny.

The star has delayed vital treatment on his stage two prostate cancer so he can promote his new memoir about his life with late girlfriend Farrah Fawcett - and he accepts the decision could be deadly.

In a candid interview with news show "Access Hollywood" on Tuesday, O'Neal said, "The book cried out to be sold and so I decided to do that first and then I'll address my cancers...I feel fine."

Asked by host Billy Bush if he cares whether he lives or dies, O'Neal stated, "I don't, frankly. I've lived a nice long life."

But he does have a plan, adding, "Starting on May 10th I'm going to freeze my prostate."

And O'Neal revealed that his cancer woes aren't solely linked to his prostate.

Wearing a bandage on his nose, he explained, "I'm not done and I'm not that beaten down but... I have three cancers at the moment - on my face, in my prostate and I have chronic leukemia, so I'm not so sure if I should get subscriptions to magazines for more than a year at a time."
