Well-known musician Tim Commerford recently talked to Spin magazine on December 12, disclosing his diagnosis of prostate cancer. He revealed that his prostate was removed before his previous tour, as he talked about his experience with the condition.
“Prostate cancer is a very, very, very nasty one because it’s tied to your s**uality. It’s hard to disengage from that and when you’re put into that circumstance, it’s a painful psychological trip. I’ve been trying to locate support groups, and it’s hard to find people and hard to speak about it.”
The Rage Against the Machine member never meant to announce his prostate cancer diagnosis and only his bandmates knew about it. He chose not to conceal anything after discovering that Andy Taylor could not attend the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony after being diagnosed with prostate cancer. Tim Commerford acknowledged former road racing cyclist Lance Armstrong as an inspiration to him, and claimed that he also recommended a few methods in which he might manage the sickness.
What is prostate cancer? Symptoms and causes
As the name says, prostate cancer affects the prostate, where the disease develops up. However, it cannot lead to any significant consequences. The most frequent symptoms are issues with urination, decreased force in the stream of urine, blood in the urine and semen, bone pain, weight loss, and erectile dysfunction. The etiology of prostate cancer is currently under inquiry.
This illness is widespread among persons over 50 years of age. It may affect persons who have a family history of the illness and those who are obese have a significant chance of developing it. It may lead to complications including the spread of cancer to other body areas, incontinence, and erectile dysfunction. Prostate cancer may be avoided with a few steps that include the intake of fruits and vegetables, exercising every day, keeping a healthy weight, and consulting a doctor if there is a danger of getting the condition.
Tim Commerford creates a new company alongside Mathias Wakrat and Jonny Polonsky
Tim Commerford joined drummer Mathias Wakrat and guitarist Jonny Polonsky last month, and they established a new combo, 7D7D. Their debut hit was named Capitalism. The revelation came after Race Against the Machine postponed their forthcoming tour in North America the following year. The decision was decided when Zack de la Rocha damaged his leg. The band revealed the news on social media, explaining that Zack tore his Achilles tendon. All individuals who bought tickets for the event were promptly reimbursed. Zack’s injury also led to the cancellation of a couple more events early this year.
