“Cancer doesn’t just happen to others”: Michel Cymes shares details of his health in his new book
At 65, the favorite doctor of the French is always present to help the population to live healthier. But few people know the details of Michel Cymes’ health life.
In 2017, he admitted to having ADHD or Attention Deficit Disorder with or without Hyperactivity, which only affects 2% to 4% of adults in France. To put it simply, it causes him to be hyperactive, unable to concentrate fully for long periods of time, and bored quickly.

This disorder is generally visible from childhood and can be a real handicap to learning for those who are affected.
According to the website officially sharing ADHD information,
“Parents notice excessive agitation from the age of walking, or are alerted to it as soon as they enter the community. From the start of primary school, school demands increase: the disorder leads to learning difficulties and social and family disruptions that worry families and drive them to seek counselling.”
How did Michel Cymes, then, do to complete his studies and to carry out his daily tasks? He explains :
This “allowed me to understand the difficulties I had in carrying out my studies. I now know that I have a capacity for concentration that is ultra-limited in time (…) I have built up a kind of library in my brain, which I come to draw from.

Without having given any details yet, Michel Cymes has already announced that he will address the subject of his experience in his next book “Nothing is impossible (my story could be yours)” scheduled for release on October 5, 2022 at Stock.
“This book is different from all my other books. I approach a subject whose details I had always tried to keep secret, a subject which I will never fully understand but on which I have made great progress, by peeling it, by searching it, by exploring, by questioning it: my experience”,
does he share during his announcement, to which he will add that this book is in honor of a sharing that he wishes to share with his readers, having been faithful to him for years.

“You will see that cancer does not only happen to others and that it is important to get screened because we are not always “lucky”, like me, to discover it by chance…”
he continues while reinforcing the importance of everyone being screened for cancer. This is also a prevention campaign that he has been supporting for a very long time in order toencourage the French population to screen for cancer.
In addition to addressing this battle that he led incognito, his new book will also share the details of his career, his youth, his career in general but also his childhood.
