Blink-182 bassist Mark Hoppus confirms stage 4 lymphoma cancer diagnosis 

Bassist and co-vocalist of Blink-182, Mark Hoppus confirmed that he has been diagnosed with cancer.

The 49-year-old singer revealed details of his diagnosis on a Twitch stream, saying he has “diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A”.

“My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it’s entered four different parts of my body,” the singer explained.

“I don’t know how exactly they determine the four-part of it but it’s entered enough parts of my body that I’m Stage 4, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I’m Stage 4-A,” he went on to say.

“Ideally, I go in tomorrow and they say, ‘Congratulations, your chemotherapy has worked and you’re all done and you’ll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life,'” he added.

Hoppus went on to say that even if the update is good or bad, he would still have to wrap up his remaining three rounds of chemo just to be safe.

“We’re beating this cancer. It’s just a matter of time,” he told his fans.
