Frontman Iron Maiden Bruce Dickinson was diagnosed with tongue cancer in 2014. The Internet media claimed that oral sex was the main reason for Bruce's tongue cancer.
During the recent interview with Syöpäjärjestöt from Finland, Bruce Dickinson spoke about the connection of his cancer and oral sex. He said:
"It's silly why there is such a stigma about it. [someone asked you]"What was the cancer you had?" If you said "I have squamous cell carcinoma," people say, "Oh, what's this?" And you say, "It's cervical cancer." . & # 39; & # 39; Yes. So I have cervical cancer in the throat. "There you go." Because the cells are the same. "
If a woman gets cervical cancer – which is a terrible thing – but if a woman has cervical cancer, no one comes out saying, "Oh, it's because you're a woman and you're a bad person," or "You were disobedient" or "You're having sex." Duh! That's what people do. Otherwise, the human race would be extinguished.
So it's kind of hypocritical of the press – certain elements in the press – to talk about it. They're like pathetic kids. & # 39; Oral sex? Uhhh. & # 39; It is pathetic. Probably 80% of the human race was exposed to human papillomavirus.
And what everyone should be doing is to say, how can we find out more about why, in the first place, it can cause cancer in some people and not in others? because in men over 40, all of a sudden, there is an epidemic; and why there is no test in men – simple and easy test, like the smear test in women.
