New York (CNN Business) Rush Limbaugh, the conservative talk show radio host, is battling stage 4 lung cancer and said Monday he's had a setback in his prognosis.

"The scans did show some progression of cancer," he told listeners of his radio show.

He later added: "It's not dramatic, but it is the wrong direction.".

The 69-year-old was diagnosed with lung cancer in February.

Limbaugh said his doctors changed his medications in "hopes of keeping additional progression at bay for as long as possible."

Prior to this week's update, he said that cancer "had been reduced, and it had become manageable.".

"It's tough to realize that the days where I do not think I'm under a death sentence are over," Limbaugh said. »
