BLINK-182 singer and bassist Mark Hoppus has revealed that he is battling cancer.

The musician broke the news of his diagnosis by posting a photo of himself in what appears to be a doctor's office surrounded by medical equipment. He wrote in an accompanying caption: "Yes hello. One cancer treatment, please."
Hoppus has since released the following statement: "For the past three months, I've been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer.
"I have cancer. It sucks and I'm scared, and at the same time I'm blessed with incredible doctors and family 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."
The 49-year-old Hoppus is BLINK-182's bassist, co-vocalist and sole remaining founding member.
BLINK-182's latest album, "Nine", was released in September 2019 via Columbia Records.
