Iron Maiden released an official statement on their website this morning regarding singer, Bruce Dickinson undergoing treatment for a small cancerous tumor at the back of his tongue. The statement reads as follows:
“Just before Christmas, Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson visited his doctor for a routine checkup. This led to tests and biopsies which revealed a small cancerous tumor at the back of his tongue. A seven week course of chemotherapy and radiology treatment was completed yesterday. As the tumor was caught in the early stages the prognosis thankfully is extremely good. Bruce’s medical team fully expect him to make a complete recovery with the all clear envisaged by late May. It will then take a further few months for Bruce to get back to full fitness. In the meantime, we would ask for your patience, understanding and respect for Bruce’s family’s privacy until we update everyone by the end of May. Bruce is doing very well considering the circumstances and the whole team are very positive.”
Our thoughts and well wishes are with Bruce and his family.
