Singer Yoon Do-hyun talked about the process of getting completely cured of a rare cancer
The broadcast of tvN’s “You Quiz on the Block” on September 27th featured the guest appearance of “rock legend” Yoon Do-hyun.
On August 10th, Yoon Do-hyun confessed that he had been fighting cancer. The male singer said he was diagnosed with cancer during a medical examination in 2021 and was completely cured after three years of treatment.
He got medical checkups every year and received a written result paper every time. However, that time, the hospital called him.
Yoon Do-hyun shared, “They said I got cancer. At that moment, I was very shocked and completely taken aback. My mind went blank”.
After a follow-up medical examination, they found out that the cancer had already developed five years ago. As it progressed little by little, the previous regular medical checkups couldn’t detect it.
Yoon Do-hyun confessed, “The first treatment failed, and after careful consideration, I decided to do radiation therapy for the second treatment. I had no choice but to tell my parents about the cancer because radiation therapy would make me become physically weak.”
Surprisingly, the doctor who conducted radiation therapy for me was the same doctor who cured actor Kim Woo-bin’s cancer.
Yoon Do-hyun explained, “When I consulted with the doctor in the room for the Department of Radiation Oncology, I saw a picture of Kim Woo-bin”, adding “The doctor said, ‘When you are cured, I will also hang your picture there so that many other patients can gain more strength’.”
Earlier in 2017, Kim Woo-bin was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer and went on a long hiatus to fight the disease.
He recently returned to activities in good health and has been praying for all patients who fight rare diseases for 4 years.
Yoon Do-hyun also impressed the public by carrying out various activities, including performances, radio programs, and musicals, even when he was sick.
