Ralph Siegel: Cancer is back

Ralph Siegel (77) has been diagnosed with prostate cancer for the third time. "After twelve years, my prostate cancer is back. I've had the first radiation treatments since Wednesday - also against metastases in my left shoulder," says the music producer and composer in an interview with "Bild am Sonntag". Siegel also has other health problems: "Actually, everything hurts. My shoulder, the triple herniated disc, the nerve disease polyneuropathy in my feet," he reveals.

In 2007 he had his first prostate operation, which lasted six and a half hours. However, the prostate was not removed, Siegel explains. Three years later, the cancer returned, and seven weeks of radiation followed. "My father died of prostate cancer at the age of 61, I'm scared of that." That's why he's been doing a blood test every three months since 2012.

On October 20, Siegel's musical "'Nttle Peace - Rock'n'Roll Summer" premiered in Duisburg, three weeks earlier he said he had been diagnosed with cancer again. He promised his doctors "to go to the clinic immediately after the premiere," says Siegel. "I was there on Monday to prepare for the radiation." He demands absolute openness from the doctors when it comes to his state of health – "I want to know how I am. They tell me I would make it. That's my firm will. So that I still have a lot of time with my Laura."

Despite his health problems, Siegel continues to work in the recording studio: "Work keeps me young. And my wife." Ralph Siegel and his wife Laura have been married since 2018. It is already the fourth marriage for the successful producer.
