Chimaira: Ex-Frontmann Mark Hunter leidet an Schilddrüsenkrebs

Wir drücken ihm alle Daumen.

VON AM 02/08/2019

Bei Mark Hunter, dem Ex-Sänger der 2014 aufgelösten Band Chimaira, wurde Krebs diagnostiziert. Wie der Musiker in einem Statement auf seinen Socials mitteilte, leide er an Schilddrüsenkrebs.

Man habe den Tumor letztes Jahr bei einer Routineuntersuchung festgestellt. Nach zwei Biopsien habe man festgestellt, dass das Tumorgewebe bösartig sei.

Ehemaliger Chimaira-Sänger muss sich Therapie unterziehen

Hunter wurde die Hälfte seiner Schilddrüse herausoperiert, damit die behandelnden Ärzte feststellen konnten, um welche Art von Tumor es sich handelt.

Im nächsten Schritt müsse dann auch der Rest der Schilddrüse entfernt werden, um anschließend mit einer Radiojodtherapie beginnen zu können.

Die Heilungschancen bei dieser Art von Schilddrüsenkrebs seien hoch und Hunter zeigt sich zuversichtlich, dass er den Krebs mithilfe der Ärzte, seiner Familie und seiner Freunde besiegen könne.

„Last year during a physical, my doctor discovered a large mass in my neck.
I had two fine needle biopsies, but the results were inconclusive.

A week ago, I had half of my thyroid removed so doctors could better test the tumor. The results were positive for Papillary cancer- the most common of thyroid cancers. Luckily, it also has a high cure rate. There is no known cause for this type of cancer, but it’s likely genetic. There weren’t any symptoms either.

The next step is to remove the rest of my thyroid on August 12th and explore radioactive iodine treatment. I should probably sit on a beach somewhere after that.“

Wir wünschen Mark Hunter alles erdenklich Beste und viel Kraft für die bevorstehende Therapie.

Hello friends. There's no easy way to say it. I have thyroid cancer. Last year during a physical, my doctor discovered a large mass in my neck. I had two fine needle biopsies, but the results were inconclusive. A week ago, I had half of my thyroid removed so doctors could better test the tumor. The results were positive for Papillary cancer- the most common of thyroid cancers. Luckily, it also has a high cure rate. There is no known cause for this type of cancer, but it's likely genetic. There weren't any symptoms either. The next step is to remove the rest of my thyroid on August 12th and explore radioactive iodine treatment. I should probably sit on a beach somewhere after that. I'm grateful for my team of doctors at the Cleveland Clinic, my supportive friends and family, and for Lauren and her ability to help me out of the depressive dark hole the news caused me to go down. My mother is also an inspiration for having beat colon cancer, as are many of my friends and fans who've endured much worse. You guys and gals are my extended family, and I'm thankful to have you by my side after all these years. I truly appreciate it. My hope is this inspires you to stay on top of your health. A routine physical could save your life. In the meantime, I am going to stay busy on work-related projects while enjoying the rest of my summer. I'll continue to keep my mind busy immersed in my hobbies shall it start to wander toward the dark side. Leaving you with my favorite quote from Nietzsche (and Conan the Barbarian) that I used as lyrics for Resurrection: "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." – Mark
