Blink-182 Vocalist Mark Hoppus Has Been Diagnosed With Cancer

Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus has been diagnosed with cancer.

The rockstar made the revelation on social media where he admitted the health update has left him scared, but he's trying to remain positive.

Writing on Twitter, the 49-year-old said: "For the past three months I've been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.

"It sucks and I'm scared, and at the same time I'm blessed with incredible doctors and friends to get me through this.

"I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I'm trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can't wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all."

He hasn't disclosed what type of cancer he's been diagnosed with, nor what stage it's in.

Since revealing his heartbreaking news, the musician has been flooded with support from fellow artists and fans all over the world.

Fans suspected something wasn't quite right with the star when he posted an image to Instagram.

He was clearly in a hospital or doctor's room and was surrounded by medical equipment. The photo also came with the caption 'one cancer treatment please'.

While Mark later deleted the picture, it sparked concern amongst his supporters and it looks like he wasn't kidding around when he posted that.
