Was Michael Jackson’s hand deterioration a clue to his sudden death?

One month ago we reported that earlier this year ‘horrible’ photos of Michael Jackson’s hands had arrived in the media speculating about his fight with aging. Now we found an earlier photo of his left hand that confirms that the deterioration of his hands had gone very fast!

Let’s take a look at the deterioration of Michael Jackson’s hand between 2006 and 2009!

THE 2006 REPORT:

In 2006 a Dailymail report described Michael Jackson’s left hand (see the photo ABOVE) as:

“… his brown, cracked nails were desperately in need of a little attention.”

THE 2009 REPORT:

In 2009 a Dailymail report described Michael Jackson’s hands (see the photo BELOW) as follows:

“The singer’s fingers and nails appeared to be in a terrible state when he stepped out this week. … His hands looked very discoloured and skin looked like it was dangling from his fingers. His fingernails could only be described as a manicurist’s worst nightmare.”

What are the major changes in Jackson’s nails over the past few years?

One striking aspect appears to be the color at the base of his fingernails (where usually the white lunula or ‘nail moons’ are found): while in 2006 the color of that aspect of his nails appeared to be ‘dark redish’, in 2009 it had definitely become ‘brownish’.

An interesting ‘in memorium’ report about the hands of Michael Jackson describes that brown nail moon – a very unusual nail disorder – are only known to be caused by medical drugs that are being used to treat cancers of HIV (Aids). So, the ‘rare’ state of Michael Jackson’s nails indicates that the recent rumours (may 2009) that he had skin cancer could have been close to the truth. For, obviously his fingernails have indicated that Michael Jackson was not in a ‘perfect health’ at all – as stated by Dr. Tohme Tohme (a spokesman of Jackson) to the New York Daily News!

By the way, Dr. Tohme Tohme denied today in an interview with Vegas Confidential that he was one of Jackson’s doctors:

“I don’t have anything to do with his (Jackson’s) medication or health.”

Shocking impression of the hand of Michael - he now also may have skin cancer.

You health is in your hands, and your hands reveal so much about you. In 2009 various shocking photos of Michael Jackson’s hands – ‘the king of pop’ – were published in the media.

In february the DailyMail reported that his fingers and nails are in a terrible state of condition: with discoloured fingernails, puffy reddened skin, and prominent veins. Thought these are only typical sign of aging, a few days ago rumours arrived that ‘The King of Pop’ has skin cancer.

Cancerous cells have been found on his chest and neck and pre-cancerous spots have been found on his face. The skin cancer may have been caused by his pigmentation skin conditions ‘vitiligo’ or ‘lupus’ – which means that the skin will not contain melanin which protects it from the sun’s rays. However, this has been denied by a doctor claiming to be his spokesman. ‘The show must go on’???

Anyway, Jacko is in good hands for he has been attending the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles – which specialises in the treatment of skin diseases.

An onlooker said:

“His hands looked very discolored and skin looked like it was dangling from his fingers. His fingernails could only be described as a manicurist’s worst nightmare.”
