Lump Found In The Throat Of Black Sabbath’s Tony Iommi Was Not Cancerous


Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi had a great Christmas by the sounds of it, having received news that a a lump removed from his throat was not cancerous. As he recently told Planet Rock, he found that out on Christmas day (December 25th).

“Well, I had the treatment when I got back from South America I went in for the throat [operation]–they found a lump at the back of my sinus in the throat and we had to have it checked in case it may have been cancerous.

But it turns out it wasn’t, which I found out on Christmas Day, which is brilliant! So far [I’m all good.] I daren’t say that–I’ll probably fall down the stairs now!”

Iommi‘s lymphoma also continues to be in remission after years of treatment as well. Meanwhile, just yesterday (January 05th) he revealed this new song he wrote for the Birmingham Cathedral.
