Australian musician Adam Hyde of Peking Duk reveals cancer diagnosis

Beijing Duk musician Adam Hyde has revealed that he has been diagnosed with skin cancer.

The ARIA winner shared his diagnosis on the LiSTNR podcast, It’s very much with Abbie Chatfieldmoments after revealing she was dating the TV and media personality.

While the relationship between the two is going strong, they now face their biggest challenge as a couple yet following the discovery of Hyde’s health.

And it was a whirlwind from check-up to diagnosis with the musician having to undergo surgery a day after being diagnosed with neck cancer.

“I got a phone call from the receptionist and she told me I booked surgery for tomorrow because of the results, which I hadn’t gotten given the results, so I was quite confused,” she recalled in the special double episode of the podcast.

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

“The thing I love about you is that you care so much about me,” he told her on the air. “Because I thought, it is what it is, I guess. It’s a damn cancer. It’s melanoma or something, we’ll deal with it anyway. What will be will be.

“But you’ve become catatonic. You said ‘What the f***’, which I love.”

Chatfield admitted he did, but it was because he wanted him to be well as doctors told him he had “double cancer” in his neck.

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

“Again, I say, ‘Of course I find the love of my life and he gets cancer.’”

But the prognosis is good as doctors assured Hyde that “it is not melanoma” as he plans to undergo “the entire surgical treatment.”

On the same podcast, the couple appeared more in love than ever when they finally went public with their relationship.

“We are so in love and we love talking about it,” Chatfield told listeners. “Not only are we so in love, but we also have a really healthy relationship.”

Hyde also praised his new girlfriend, telling her, “Abbie, I think you’re so kind and thoughtful and smart and incredibly beautiful in a million different ways.”
