Bridge Over Diagnosis - a parody of the Simon and Garfunkel classic Bridge Over Troubled Water. Overdiagnosis is an important health care issue and hopefully this video highlights a number of the issues around this important problem.

Bridge Over Diagnosis

Now you're leery, you’ve just been scanned,
Those fears within your eyes,
I must confide.
Oh strangely enough,
Benign tumours are all around,
Like a bridge over diagnosis
You have no symptoms
Like a bridge over diagnosis
I will ease your mind

Now you're full of doubt,
You’ve just been screened,
These findings caused you harm,
They don’t comfort you.
But let’s be wise
Oh before sadness comes
No real illness was found
Like a bridge over diagnosis
Widened disease thresholds
Like a bridge over diagnosis
I will ease your mind

Overdiagnosis, makes me sigh.
Your time has not come to die,
All your dreams can be on their way.
You need peace of mind,
Oh you are not condemned
It’s likely quite benign
Like a bridge over diagnosis
Labelling’s a concern
Like a bridge over diagnosis
I will ease your mind.

1) The use is solely for non-commercial purposes
2) The use is solely for the purposes of education - promoting the concepts of the issue of overdiagnosis to healthcare providers and patients
3) The copyright holder for this track http://www.karaoke-version.com has said it is acceptable to use their tracks for this sort of purpose.
4) It is parody as it equates the original context of the song of a person offering to help someone with their life troubles and providing them advice to a person offering help and advice about the concepts of overdiagnosis
5) Substantive transformative changes have been made - new lyrics and vocals
