PC, what a bummer!

Posted 08 May 2019 at 15:42

Hi all, I was diagnose with PC in March. I'm lucky that it was found early and I am able to go onto active surveillance and delay any treatment for a while.

I was told about the Prostate Cancer UK website and have found some really useful information on there. The forums are also a great source of info and indeed comfort.

I have decided to take part in the March for Men in Manchester and in order to help my fundraising effort thought I'd write a short poem to post up with my sponsor sheet. It seems to be fairly successful so far.

I thought it may raise a smile among some of the members here so here it is:

They told me I've got cancer, they said its up me bum.

A thing they call the prostate gland that regulates your cum.

They say its not too serious and that they've got a cure

and I can trust the NHS of that I'm very sure.

They said they'd use a radio to make the cancer fail, I've tried both radio 1 and 2 but all to no avail.

I think they've got a special set that plays in different ways, they must be a clever lot these hospital djs.

Or maybe Brachytherapy's a better thing to try, they stick atomic seeds up there to make the cancer fry.

It sounds a bit adventurous and really quite a lark.

I always knew my farts were bad but now they'll glow in't dark!

So I'm gonna have my treatment and though it might take time

I know that at the end of it I'm gonna be just fine.

So if you're able, give a quid - send cancer on its way,

Donate whatever you can spare to Prostate Cancer UK.


Hope you like it and it doesn't offend anyone.

Very amusing!

Well done, and best of luck with your AS and treatment being delayed as long as possible.

Cheers, John.
