LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – The legendary heavy metal band Iron Maiden has revealed that the band's frontman Bruce Dickinson has been treated for cancer.
In a statement posted on the band's official website, a spokesperson for the band wrote:
"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."
The band just concluded a three-year long tour in July. – Staff Writers
