Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Reveals He Has Stage Four Lymphoma

Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus Has Stage Four lymphoma.

The rocker, 49, shared new details about his cancer diagnosis during a recent Twitch livestream, which was summarized by Page six.

“My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it has invaded four different parts of my body,” Hoppus explained in the video, which was captured by a fan account and not specifically dated.

“I don’t know exactly how they determine the fourth part of it,” he continued, “but it’s entered enough parts of my body that I’m stage 4, which I think is the highest it goes.” So I’m phase 4-A.’

Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (abbreviated as DLBCL) is a cancer that begins in white blood cells called lymphocytes and is the most common type of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

according to woMD: ‘DLBCL grows rapidly, but 3 in 4 people are disease-free after treatment and about half are cured.’

The Always singer said he would go to the doctor the next day to see if chemotherapy had any effect.

“Ideally I go in tomorrow and they say, ‘Congratulations, your chemotherapy has worked and you’re all set and you’ll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life,’ Hoppus said.

He went on optimistically, telling fans, “We’re beating this cancer. It’s just a matter of time.’

Earlier this week, the rocker took to Twitter to tell fans he was getting ready for a test that could “determine if I live or die.”

Addressing his 2.7 million followers, he wrote: “Sorry if I share too much, but it’s so unreal to think I’m going to take a test this week that could very well determine whether I live or die.

The What is my age again? singer said he felt “much better” during a game of Blinko for the benefit of Children’s Hospital LA.

“I went for a walk and had a good breakfast, and I didn’t feel like I was going to throw up today, so we consider it a win.”

He added that he felt significantly less nauseous than during his previous round of chemotherapy.

“I’ve actually watched movies and walked around and cleaned the house and hung out with my dogs,” he said with a smile.

“Then I didn’t just feel like a poisoned, electrified zombie leaning against an electric fence like I did the rest for the past few laps.”

He first announced his cancer diagnosis on June 23, tweet: “It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.”
