‘Divine Itch’ Helps Grandpa Detect Breast Cancer

​AURORA, Colo. (CBS4)– According to the American Cancer Society, about one in 1,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

A grandfather from Aurora is that unlucky one, but luckily he caught it twice.

Phil Deal is the real deal. He is “Papa,” who adores his grandkids and he is a loving husband and father. Every moment with family is precious to Phil. He is fighting stage 4 cancer.
“Breast cancer,” he told CBS4 Health Specialist Kathy Walsh.
And this is round two. Phil first discovered it in 1999, by what he refers to as “the divine itch.”
