Satyricon Bassist Anders Odden Diagnosed with Colon Cancer

Satyricon bassist Anders Odden has revealed that he has been diagnosed with Colon Cancer and will have surgery next Monday, January 6th. According to Odden’s post to Instagram, the surgery is expected to remove the malignant tumors and any nearby lymph nodes. He was diagnosed on December 28th, the anniversary of Odden’s hero Lemmy of Motorhead dying. Overall, the prognosis so far is good, according to Odden.

“I was diagnosed with colon cancer the 3rd of October 2019. Since then I have done chemotherapy to shrink the tumor down so I can undergo surgery.

“The surgery date is set to the 6th of January 2020. The doctors have told me that everything will go as planed and that I will get rid of this cancer. It’s a tough journey, but I am ready. Have a happy new year and I will see you when I am through. #cancer #coloncancer #cancerresearch #mikkeydee #hankvonhell #motorhead #riplemmykilmister”

I wanted to wait to tell you all about my condition until my surgery was done, but then I got this video clip. On my musical hero Lemmy’s, death date (28.12.2015) my friend Hank Von Hell is in Sweden raising money for the cancer cause with Motorhead drummer Mikkey Dee. Getting this video was very touching and made me wanna share it with you to raise money for cancer research. I was diagnosed with colon cancer the 3rd of October 2019.
