He returns in particular to this cancer hidden in one of his kidneys, and discovered in 2008 completely by chance. While doing a scan following a skiing accident, a cancerous tumor was spotted in his kidney. A new particularly difficult to assume, although he has rubbed shoulders with the disease all his career as a doctor by profession… It is besides this framework that pushed him to never reveal his kidney cancer.

Invited on the set of C à vous this Monday, October 3, Michel Cymes finally returned to this discovery which stunned him. “At the time of the announcement, you are knocked out. Being a doctor, it’s even more complicated. These are moments of amazement. We crack, and then we wake up and then we fight”he dropped in front of Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine.

Fourteen years later, Michel Cymes comes out of silence and openly talks about the disease since he came out of it.
