Exodus drummer Tom Hunting has been diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the stomach. In a press statement, he expressed the desire to raise awareness for the condition in hopes of helping others identify potential symptoms early.
The news comes as anticipation mounts for Persona Non Grata, the title given to the band's forthcoming album and first since 2014's Blood In, Blood Out.
"Today I will be starting treatment for a squamous cell carcinoma. It's a gastric tumor that was diagnosed in my upper stomach in February," relayed Hunting.
