Megadeth's Dave Mustaine shares positive update on his battle with throat cancer

In June earlier this year, Dave Mustaine, frontman of legendary thrash metal band Megadeth shocked the heavy metal community when he revealed that he had been diagnosed with throat cancer. 

Now, just three months after his initial prognosis, Mustaine has taken to the band's website to share some news on his condition. Check out the complete statement from Mustaine below. 

I wanted to take a moment to give you all an update on the current status of my health. I’m almost through the last round of treatment and my doctors are feeling very positive regarding my progress. I want to thank all of you for the support and well wishes these last few months. I can’t express enough gratitude as it has made this hard road easier knowing you are in my corner fighting with me!

Over the next few weeks my condition will be evaluated, and I will keep you posted on my progress as we get closer to the sailing date of the first Megacruise! We can’t wait to see you, and I know all of the other wonderful artists feel the same way. Let’s make this event one for the record books. Less than 30 days till we are Thrashing through the Pacific!

See you all very soon.

Dave
