    Default Eric Dane (Dr. McSteamy) had cancer and nobody cared

    What Do You Do If You Have Cancer And No One Notices?



    What happens if you discover that you have a malignant cancer, are an actor, get treatment, and no one ever notices? Well, if you are Eric Dane, you let a tabloid know about it. Look, we all know Eric Dane is a great guy. There was the kindness item, plus he is married to Rebecca Gayheart which cannot be easy. Yes, she is gorgeous, but to put up with her everyday is a kindness everyday of his life.

    What I can't understand is why, without any prompting and definitely not done as a PSA, did Eric Dane decide to let us all know that he had suffered from skin cancer and received treatment? According to OK!, Eric Dane was diagnosed with skin cancer last month. Eric became concerned when he noticed an unusual patch of skin above his lips and immediately sought medical treatment.

    "I went to my dermatologist. He said it was malignant tissue caused by sun damage." Doctors treated the growth by freezing it off with liquid nitrogen and Dane admits it was a traumatic procedure. He adds, "My skin is very sensitive and my lip was traumatized by the procedure I had to go through. I didn't eat very well for a couple of weeks and lost a bunch of weight."

    Eric says he dropped about ten pounds during the ordeal, but is now fine and everything is normal. If Eric had found someone at the American Cancer Society and said, "hey, I had skin cancer and beat it, and want to do a PSA about early treatment or whatever," I would applaud him. The fact is though that the only people he told were a tabloid. That is fine I guess, BUT, then later he can't go around complaining that tabloids never leave him alone or they are too invasive. He has set the precedent that they should know intimately personal things about celebrities if he is the one going to them without any prompting. If they start asking questions to his wife about her life and medical conditions, he can't be pissed. He has said by going to them that they have the right to this information.

    Aw poor McSteamy, I'd gladly nurse him back to health.
    I smile because I have no idea what's going on

    If he had squamous or basil cell carcinoma, it's hardly big news. These are very common and highly treatable/curable skin cancers. He had a bad reaction to a treatment that is commonly used to freeze off warts. They didn't amputate his lips. While I'm sure this was an ordeal for him, I'd feel more sorry for him if he had melanoma. That skin cancer is a bitch - I watched my healthy, vibrant young father being taken out by that fucker in 8 months. It's not a pretty death at all!!

    It wasn't Dane who said nobody cared, it was the blogger who said that.

    I'm assuming the person who wrote this has never had a doctor tell them "You have cancer." For that, they should be thankful rather than write crap like this.

    Yeah, it's a pretty bitchy article. They act like the guy ran to a tabloid screaming "I had cancer, could you write a story about me now?"

    I've not had to face it yet, and am really not looking forward to it. I can't imagine how you managed to get through it. *hugs*

    Eric, darling, I had the exact same procedure done on the same area above my lip. And if you were traumatized by it, then you are a pussy.

    Instead of whining about no attention, do something good with your fame and do some PSAs, fool.

    Any cancer scare is life altering. TRUST ME ON THAT!

    I'm glad he's ok...and it was easily treatable.
