The presenter of Citofonare Rai 2 spoke for the first time about the kidney cancer that she was diagnosed with and for which she underwent surgery less than a month ago.

Paola Perego and the fight against kidney cancer

I'm recovering from cancer, it wasn't easy. I'm fine now” , Paola Perego told Silvia Toffanin. The presenter of Citofonare Rai2, less than a month ago, had told on Instagram that she had undergone a partial nephrectomy due to kidney cancer, also launching an important message in favor of prevention. A message that he wanted to reiterate, once again, to Verissimo: “Prevention is important, it can save lives . I discovered the tumor only by doing it, otherwise perhaps it would have grown bigger”.

Perego said she discovered the disease thanks to prevention: ” I had a very normal check-up and they saw something wrong with the kidney. Then the diagnosis of carcinoma. I feel privileged because I can have the checks done privately every year .” The presenter is still digesting what happened to her:

I didn't realize this immediately, but after the surgery. Now I'm still processing the fact that I had cancer. You always think it can only happen to others, it's quite shocking. My children were scared.

Paola Perego and panic attacks

During the interview with Verissimo, Perego also spoke about the panic attacks, which he suffered from for more than 20 years. A problem for which he used psychotropic drugs for a long time and experienced difficult moments in his life:

The panic attacks were disabling. I admitted having used psychotropic drugs afterwards, once I got off them, not while I was taking them. I only managed to get by with those and psychotherapy, otherwise I wouldn't have made it. I would go to work under the influence of drugs, then stay at home waiting for the next attack. Leaving the house increased the fear.
