Iron Maiden Singer Dickinson Treated For Cancer

FUCK !


LONDON (AP) — Iron Maiden says singer Bruce Dickinson has been treated for cancer of the tongue, but hopes to be back to full fitness soon.

A statement posted Thursday on the band's official website says a cancerous tumor was discovered during a check-up in December, and Dickinson has completed a seven-week course of chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

It says the prognosis is "extremely good," and doctors expect Dickinson to make a full recovery, "with the all-clear envisaged by late May."

Dickinson, who is 56, joined the British metal megastars in the early 1980s, and is also a commercial airline pilot. Iron Maiden's hits include "Run to the Hills" and "The Number of the Beast."

It's like, its hard to imagine a disease can get a hold of him!

Let's face it, as fans, we don't just want for him to regain his health. We also don't want him to lose any singing prowess! Tongue cancer. I have no idea if it'll affect him later on but damn it can't be good for a singer!

Just before Christmas, Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson visited his doctor for a routine check-up. This led to tests and biopsies which revealed a small cancerous tumour at the back of his tongue. A seven week course of chemotherapy and radiology treatment was completed yesterday. As the tumour 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 and his 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.

Bruce then everyone else. Have seen Maiden in '88 '90 '08 '10 and '12. My favourite heavy band of all time.
