Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Diagnosed With Throat Cancer
“I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate,” heavy metal great writes
“I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on – but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun,” Mustaine announced in an Instagram post.
While the heavy metal act’s upcoming trek will largely be canceled as Mustaine undergoes treatment – check out Megadeth’s tour page for updates – the recently announced Megacruise from October 13th to 19th would still depart as scheduled, “and the band will be a part of it in some form,” Mustaine wrote.
Megadeth will also continue working in the studio on their follow-up album to 2016’s Euphoria.
“I’m so thankful for my whole team – family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more,” Mustaine added. “I’ll keep everyone posted.”
