Ronan Keating ‘planned funeral’ after cancer scareApril 20th, 2009 - 3:39 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, April 20 (ANI): Ronan Keating was so scared after he discovered a lump on his testicles that he started planning his own funeral.
The Boyzone star, whose mother died of breast cancer, confessed that he was a bundle of nerves following the false cancer scare and had even short-listed the songs to be played during his final ceremony.
‘It was really scary. I thought I definitely had cancer,” Contactmusic quoted him as telling Britain’s Daily Mail.
“The lump felt very different and I knew straight away there was something there. I had written myself off. I had the songs picked for my funeral and everything,” he added.
The 32-year-old further revealed that despite reassurances from the doctors that the lump was harmless, he was still unable to be at peace during a holiday in South Africa.
He added: “I called my GP straight away. He told me it was probably fine but to come and see him when I got back. Being a hypochondriac I feared the worst. We went to the beach, the wine region and on safari, but I worried the whole time. ” (ANI)
