Rolling Stones’ Ronnie Wood shares health update after cancer scare
Updated: Mar 29, 2018
It was all clear and they said ‘go and enjoy life'”
The Rolling Stones‘ guitarist Ronnie Wood has revealed that he is now cancer-free after having a health scare last year.
Last year, the rock icon revealed that he had prepared to “say goodbye” to his loved ones before he underwent five hours of surgery to remove cancer from one of his lungs. Now, he’s spoken about life having been given the all clear.
“I had three months of check-ups and it was all clear and they said ‘go and enjoy life’,” Wood told Metro.
Addressing previous stories that he turned down chemotherapy in order to keep his hair, Wood continued: “If your body is riddled with cancer, it’s a losing cause. Luckily, all mine was contained within the left lung and I was fortunate enough to get shot of it, bang.
“There was none in the rest of my body so I didn’t require chemo.”
However, Wood did admit that he wouldn’t have changed any of the excesses that he enjoyed in the past.
“Not even smoking for England for over 50 years — it was a wonder I wasn’t riddled with cancer in both lungs,” he said. “It’s a wonder they both didn’t explode.”
Asked about what advice he’d give to anyone battling cancer, he urged them to “stay positive and stay strong”.
“I’ve had a great life and I was all ready to go,” he added. “Wow! I didn’t know I was going to be given the ticket to last this long. What a reprieve.”
