Our sources say his medical team is concerned it's cancer, and they're conducting a biopsy to get answers.

As TMZ reports, Diamond was admitted to hospital in Florida this past weekend due to "pain all over his body and a general sense of unease", the publication writes.

Most known for playing Samuel "Screech" Powers on the beloved coming-of-age sitcom, the actor's team told Fox News on Tuesday that Diamond is now "undergoing testing" at what they're calling an "undisclosed location" for fear the actor will be targeted by paparazzi.

Diamond rose to fame for his role as Samuel "Screech" Powers on Good Morning, Miss Bliss, the Disney sitcom that later became Saved By The Bell.

He hasn't done much acting since his "Saved by the Bell" days, but had been active in stand-up comedy in recent years performing at comedy clubs across the country.

It's more bad news for Diamond, who was not recast for the current reboot of Saved By the Bell previous year.
