Mathew Knowles, father of Beyoncé and Solange, revealed on "Good Morning America" that he's been battling breast cancer.

Knowles told interviewer Michael Strahan that he noticed a "small, recurring dot of blood" on his shirt two months ago and said he immediately went to his doctor.

He had surgery in July and says he's now doing "all the steps for recovery."

"I'm doing really good," he said. "I stopped drinking, I just wanted to have a clean bill of health… Exercise, meditate. Things that used to be important are not important to me now. I just look at the world differently."
