    Stan getting his stomach checked out for cancer

    Post by shoooshoo on Tue Dec 15, 2009 1:30 pm

    portion of article taken from :

    http://nz.entertainment.yahoo.com/b/annahiggins/4737/in-the-gossip-mags/

    Australian Idol champ Stan Walker is in the Day speaking out about his plans to get genetically tested for ‘an aggressive and deadly hereditary stomach cancer.'

    "You can get your stomach removed. I want to do that - then I'd be skinny," jokes Stan.

    "You'd still have a big bum though," points out his mum April.

    Stan tells New Idea he has a definite idea about the qualities he'd like to find in his dream girl. "I want someone who can sing, is funny, can eat and someone who loves family, God and me."

    the person who 'wrote' the article got her sources (as quoted) from New Idea and Day, which I assume she meant Woman's Day.

    anybody got copies of those mags to check?

    edit:

    actually, seeing this was found on a NZ website, she might have been quoting off NZ editions of the mags, so... cyclops

    His family have lost a lot of members to cancer - that is why is the Sony Ambassador (or at least one of the reasons) he has a particular interest.

    I wouldn't be surprised if he is having genetic screening for cancer. A lot of people with a family history do these days. If the quote is true, sounds sensible to me. DOES NOT mean he has it, just means he wants to know his risk.

    my goodness... at first I've nearly fainted...

    It's good though that he gets checked, prevention is the best cure. My family is tested every year for similar reasons... you get used it after a while... and makes you feel like you are in control of the disease.
    Stan is the perfect ambassador for the cause, he acts and speaks responsibly about it adding a hint of irony... you need it in those circumstances... he is mature beyond his years

    you can tell from the light-hearted way Stan and mum was joking about it, but (and this is not surprising at all) there are ppl now who actually seriously believe Stan has cancer. cyclops

    I know - I just responded to a couple of tweets on the topic. Sheeeeeeesh.

    Women have mammograms to detect breast cancer, pap smears to detect cervical changes to detect early - I don't see Stan's actions, if and when they are verified, as any different.

    Tahnk you so much Deb please let us know when you do buy the magazine, even though someone was saying that it's a NZ edition maybe???
    anyway, when anyone has the mag please drop in to post the whole article 'cause that gossip ref doesn't go well with our Stanilicious interest ( I know is a word used by the mag......but still...) and it regards something really personal as medical family history, so we better get this issue straight and clear any uncertainty .... some ppl got upset with this news.... would be great to have the full story in our hand before freaking out further

    oh yes, the title of the article is .... LOL will wait for the whole article, going to buy it tomorrow

    In the meantime I'll say: the important thing is that Stan has been tested regularly to limit the danger.
    So, prevention is good take care lovely Stany

    yes it is good I think I told you one big Maori family a few years back was used for a new break through on how genetically one family can get this disease in each generation and sometimes each generation it gets worse this Maori family it was ovarian cancer but because of them and a few other families around the world they were able to see the DNA facts on it..
    even though this is a serious issue I like it that April said he still would have a 'big bum' poor Stan

    Certainly a misleading headliner alright...newz is newz no matter what, just to make a buck...whoa what a sad world we live in Shocked ...part and parcel of being in the public eye I guess...

    Yes Stanley, please keep up with the checkups....I want you to have a very long, prosperous career!!!

    Good to see family are helping him to stay grounded....although never doubted it for a moment! Big Smile

    Stomach Cancer

    Post by Linda on Thu Dec 17, 2009 8:39 pm

    I've done a little research and found this interesting webpage about stomach cancer. I'm not 100% certain this is what Stan has been discussing but it sounds about right.

    It is not a test for cancer per se. Dumb journalist. He can only be tested for a gene, which increases the likelihood of getting the cancer. Because that particular cancer is prevalent in his family, it is a good idea that they all get tested for the gene. It's hardly surprising that the gene is prevalent in his family.

    Stan's right. The only way to guarantee not getting the cancer is to remove the organ, which hosts it. i.e. his stomach. Not a practical solution. He's doing the sensible thing and having regular gastroscopy checkups to monitor for changes in his stomach tissue. Not much else he can do but wait and see.

    yes it is terrible think NN to have that in a family, I know a friend whose family had breast cancer but the gene got stronger not weaker..but she does regularly check ups which is the best thing to do. ah yes well we know what journalist like to do 'sensationalise' I was listening to Simon Cowell on how Susan boyle received in the USA a beautiful patchwork quilt done by some ladies and she was very emotional when she received it but the journo's were saying she was having a meltdown..so spoiled her moment

    Just reading the article linked by mzlinda, it actually does recommend removing the stomach! However, it says morbidity and mortality is not good.

    Yes Josie. It was a rather low way of making a headline. That was an obvious piece of mischief. How many times are we completely fooled by an article?
