Beastie Boy has Cancer

Beastie Boy Adam Yauch, also known as M.C.A, has revealed via a Youtube video that he has been diagnosed with cancer. After noticing that his throat began swelling a couple of months ago, Yaunch saw a doctor who recommended tests, and the diagnosis is a cancerous tumour in his Parotid gland, which is in the neck and produces saliva. The cancer is treatable, but Yauch will have to undergo surgery and “radiation treatment”, leading to the cancellation of all planned Beastie Boy gigs, and the release of their forthcoming album Hot Sauce Committee, Pt. 1 (a name so ridiculous we almost don’t want to mention it when reporting someone’s cancer). Yaunch has kept his sense of humour, and in a statement said “It’s a pain in the neck (sorry had to say it) because I was really looking forward to playing these shows, but the doctors have made it clear that this is not the kind of thing that can be put aside to deal with later.”
