Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Diagnosed With Throat Cancer

Dave Mustaine has been diagnosed with throat cancer.

The MEGADETH leader broke the news of his diagnosis earlier today via his social media.

He wrote: “I’ve been diagnosed with throat cancer. It’s clearly something to be respected and faced head on — but I’ve faced obstacles before. I’m working closely with my doctors, and we’ve mapped out a treatment plan which they feel has a 90% success rate. Treatment has already begun.

“Unfortunately, this requires that we cancel most shows this year. The 2019 Megacruise will happen, and the band will be a part of it in some form. All up to date information will be at as we get it. MEGADETH will be back on the road ASAP.

“Meanwhile, KikoDavidDirk and I are in the studio, working on the follow up to ‘Dystopia’— which I can’t wait for everyone to hear.

“I’m so thankful for my whole team — family, doctors, band members, trainers, and more.

“I’ll keep everyone posted.

“See you soon, Dave Mustaine

We wish Dave well!
