Christopher Dean: ‘I might have a life-changing illness’ – DOI judge’s health fears

Fitness & Health:

“I found myself preparing for the fact I might have a life-changing illness,” Christopher Dean revealed. “I thought I might need a serious operation.” When confronted with the news that he had a polyp in his bowel, Christoper contemplated his mortality. “It was the longest two weeks of my life,” Christopher told the Mirror when it came to waiting for the results of his biopsy.

“Not knowing if I was going to live or die – it was a scary prospect being faced with my own mortality,” he continued.

“My doctor was convinced I had an adenoma or adenomatous polyp,” said the 63-year-old.

Adenomatous polyps “may be precancerous”, Medical News Today highlighted.


It was bowel cancer that Christoper feared, with most people diagnosed with the condition being over 60 years old.

Any symptoms that linger for three weeks or more are best investigated by a medical professional.
