    Iron Maiden vocalist Bruce Dickinson has been diagnosed with cancer. He had a tumor on his tongue.

    The siren-like singer went to the doctor in December and the cancerous growth was spotted. Luckily, it was in the early stages. Dickinson was undergoing a course of treatment, which included chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

    The band issued a statement, which read: "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 tumor at the back of his tongue. A seven-week course of chemotherapy and radiology treatment was completed yesterday. As the tumor 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. 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."

    We send our best to Bruce Dickinson so that he makes a full recovery.
