Australian musician Adam Hyde of Peking Duk reveals cancer diagnosis

Peking Duk musician Adam Hyde has announced that he has been diagnosed with skin cancer.

The ARIA winner shared his diagnosis on the LiSTNR podcast. With Abbie Chatfield it is muchmoments after announcing that he was dating the television and media personality.

Although the couple’s relationship continues to go well, Hyde’s health diagnosis has left them facing their biggest challenge yet as a couple.

From the examination to the diagnosis, everything went by very quickly, and one day after the musician was diagnosed with cancer in his neck, he had to undergo surgery.

“I got a call from the receptionist and she said I had booked an appointment for the scan tomorrow based on the results. However, as I had not received the results yet, I was quite confused,” he recalled in the special double episode of the podcast.

Hyde – who is one half of Peking Duk alongside Reuben Styles – was with Chatfield at the time of the phone call and said she was more worried than he was.

“What I love about you is that you care about me so much,” he told her live. “Because I thought it is what it is, I guess. It’s f***ing cancer. It’s melanoma or something, but whatever – we’ll deal with it. Whatever happens, happens.”

“But you went catatonic. You said, ‘How f**k,’ I love that.”

Chatfield admitted that she did this, but only because she wanted him to be okay, as doctors had told him he had “double cancer” in his throat.

“I love you so much and I didn’t want you to worry or be sick or be in pain and I didn’t want you to die,” she explained.

“Again I thought, ‘Of course I’ll find the love of my life and he’ll get cancer.'”

However, the prognosis is good, as doctors assured Hyde that it was “not a melanoma” and that he was planning “full surgical treatment.”

In the same podcast, the couple appeared happier than ever when they finally made their relationship public.

“We’re so in love and we love talking about it,” Chatfield told the audience. “Not only are we so in love, we have a really healthy relationship.”

Hyde also heaped praise on his new girlfriend, telling her, “Abbie, I think you’re so kind and caring and intelligent and incredibly beautiful in a million different ways.”
