The Wanted's Tom Parker Reveals His Brain Tumour Is Now 'Under Control'

The Wanted's Tom Parker has revealed his brain tumour is now 'under control'.

The British musician said he had received the best news possible after battling against the cerebral disease for more than a year.

Writing on Instagram, Parker said: "I'm sat here with tears in my eyes as i tell you. We've got my brain tumour under control.

"We had the results from my latest scan...and I'm delighted to say it is STABLE. Such a mix of emotions.

"We couldn't ask for any more really at this point; a year or so in to this journey. Honestly over the moon. We can sleep a little easier tonight. T

"hank you for all your love and support over the last 12+ months."

Tom has been through a rough round of chemotherapy and radiotherapy after being previously diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour.

At the beginning of the year, he explained how all that medical intervention had helped make a 'significant' reduction.

He revealed to his army of fans back in October last year that he had been distant from social media because of his shock diagnosis.

Parker explained on social media: "There's no easy way to say this but I've sadly been diagnosed with a Brain Tumour and I'm already undergoing treatment.

"We decided, after a lot of thought, that rather than hiding away and trying to keep it a secret, we would do one interview where we could lay out all the details and let everyone know the facts in our own way.

"We are all absolutely devastated but we are gonna fight this all the way.

"We don't want your sadness, we just want love and positivity and together we will raise awareness of this terrible disease and look for all available treatment options."

Throughout his treatment journey he has thanked his loyal supporters as well as his family for helping him look on the brighter side of life and keep fighting.

"To my amazing wife @being_kelsey who has literally been my rock. My babies - I fight for you every second of every day," he said earlier this year.

"Friends, family and everyone on this journey with me - you have got me through my darkest days."
