Nobel Laureate Wole Soyinka Talks About His Battle With Prostrate Cancer

Nobel laureate and renowned dramatist, Wole Soyinka has revealed that he was diagnosed with early-stage prostate cancer in 2014.

Speaking to BBC, Soyinka revealed that he used an advanced technology, ‘proton therapy’ to treat it.

According to the 85-year-old, the treatment was an ‘easy ride although uncomfortable.

He said “It hadn’t yet gotten to the stage where it was non-reversible and so (the doctor) gave us a number of guidelines. I say us because he wanted to make sure that my wife made sure that I followed it. He sensed that I wasn’t going to be a very good patient. So he spoke to her most of the time rather than me,” he said.

”There is no disease in the world any human being needs to be ashamed.
I don’t see why people need to go to Canada, Europe to receive treatment which is affordable in this nation, it is a shame.
"The options I compared to other treatment I know about and I have seen in operation. Mine for me was an easy ride, uncomfortable in many ways but it is painless.”

  1. On wow! I pray he follows the guidelines the doctor tells him.

  2. I lost my dad to prostate cancer in 2017 and life has just been a roller coaster ever since..

    Any man above 30 needs to constantly keep tabs on his PSA level.

    Rest on daddy. I became and adult too soon, shouldering all the responsibilities you left behind.

    May God be with us all.

    1. God be with you and help you carry on. As for Prof. I am glad he beat the disease. This will go a long way in creating awareness for the disease and its treatment in Nigeria.

    2. So sorry for the loss of your dad Noni!

      I wish you strength and courage 🤗

    3. So sorry for your loss!

      My dad survived it. It was a very trying time. I don't know what I would have done if we had lost him.

    4. Thank you all.

      We'll keep keeping on.

  3. So sorry sir. God will heal you and your healing shall be permanent in Jesus name, amen

  4. The subtle shade @our leaders running abroad to treat ear infections.
