Singer Bruce Dickinson, Cancer

February 19, 2015

Two hours ago, the British Heavy Metal legends IRON MAIDEN on their Facebook page, a Post published. In it they have announced that the longtime singer of the Band, Bruce Dickinson, just before Christmas, a Tumor on the tongue discovered. Thanks to the early diagnosis, the chances of a cure were more than good. An Update to the Status quo should give it in may – out of respect for Bruce and his family, the Band is asking for patience.

Here's the original message from Facebook:


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 what is 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.
