Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus has revealed new details about his cancer diagnosis.

The 49-year-old rocker shared that he has "diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A" during a Twitch live stream with fans, which was captured and reuploaded by a Blink 182 fan account on YouTube. Hoppus was very open with his fans throughout the live stream, sharing detailed specifics about his diagnosis and treatment.

"My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it’s entered four different parts of my body," Hoppus explained.

"I don’t know how exactly they determine the four-part of it," he added, "but it’s entered enough parts of my body that I’m Stage 4which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I’m Stage 4-A."

Hoppus went on to explain that he had a doctor’s appointment the next day to determine whether or not his chemotherapy treatments were working. The exact date of the live stream is unclear, but Hoppus has yet to share an additional update.

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

The Blink-182 frontman added that regardless of the pending update — good or bad — he is required to finish his next three rounds of chemo "just to make sure."

Despite his diagnosis and ongoing treatments, Hoppus seemed in good spirits.

"We’re beating this cancer," Hoppus told fans. "It’s just a matter of time."

Hoppus confirmed his cancer diagnosis in June, later revealing he was first diagnosed two months earlier in April. Blink-182’s Travis Barker and Tom DeLonge shared support for their bandmate.

"Mark is my brother and I love and support him," Barker told E! News in a statement. "I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can’t wait for us to play together again soon."

DeLonge, who left the band in 2015, added via Twitter, "I too, have been aware of @markhoppus’s cancer diagnosis for awhile now. And to add to his own words that he used today, I would also like to say that he is strong, and a super-human who is pushing through this difficult obstacle with a wide-open heart."

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus Says He Has Stage 4 Lymphoma Cancer in Detailed Health Update

Yahoo Entertainment 18 July, 2021 - 01:10pm

The lead vocalist of the rock band, who announced he was battling cancer in late June, recently shared an update about his health during a Twitch livestream. When answering fan questions, he revealed that he has stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

"My cancer's not bone-related, it's blood-related," Mark said in a recording that was captured by the YouTube account Blink-182 Chile. "My blood's trying to kill me."

"My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it's entered four different parts of my body," he explained. "I don't know how exactly they determine the four-part of it, but it's entered enough parts of my body that I'm Stage 4, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I'm Stage 4-A."

According to Lymphoma.org, large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a type of cancer that occurs in white blood cells. It's an aggressive non-Hodgkin lymphoma that affects B-lymphocytes.

The 47-year-old musician told fans that he was diagnosed with cancer in late April and has been undergoing chemotherapy. However, he admitted that it "absolutely sucks."

As he described, "The side effect of the chemotherapy is you get something called 'chemo brain'...I forget people's names, song titles, anything...People will be talking to me, and then five minutes later I'll ask them a question and they're like, I just told you that five minutes ago."

During the livestream, Mark said he was scheduled to see if the chemotherapy was working.

"Ideally, I go in tomorrow and they say, 'Congratulations, your chemotherapy has worked and you're all done and you'll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life,'" he expressed, adding, "And if they say, 'Well, it's really not working like we hoped,' then I'll have to go in [and] talk about other options."

Mark also opened up about how his mother, who is a three-time cancer survivor, has been by his side throughout this time.

"Has my mom given me any words of encouragement? Yes. Oddly enough, we have the exact form of cancer," he explained. "And she beat it, so I've been able to talk to her and bond with her quite a bit."

On June 23, the Blink-182 rocker announced he was battling cancer.

"For the past three months I've been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer," Mark's statement on Twitter read. "I have cancer. 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."

He added, "I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I'm trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can't wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all."

Following the news, his bandmate, Travis Barker, told E! News, "Mark is my brother and I love and support him. I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can't wait for us to play together again soon."

Throughout this time, Mark has remained positive, sharing on the Twitch livestream, "We're beating this cancer. It's just a matter of time."

Mark Hoppus reveals diffuse large B-cell lymphoma diagnosis — the same cancer his mother beat

USA TODAY 18 July, 2021 - 01:10pm

Mark Hoppus is remaining optimistic about his battle with cancer, revealing that he has diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.

USA TODAY and Blink-182 tried to have a conversation on the Grammys red carpet while using Blink-182 song titles in every sentence.

The Blink-182 bassist and singer revealed Tuesday that his cancer is "blood-related," rather than "bone-related" during a virtual Q&A session on YouTube with Blink-182 fans in Chile.

"My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it's entered four different parts of my body," Hoppus explained. "I don't know how exactly they determine the four-part of it, but it's entered enough parts of my body that I'm Stage 4, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I'm Stage 4-A."

According to Mayo Clinic, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma (DLBCL) is a type of cancer that starts in white blood cells and can eventually form tumors throughout the body.

Hoppus said he's been receiving support from his mother, who beat the "exact same" type of cancer years ago. 

"I've been able to talk with her and bond with her quite a bit. Oddly enough, we have the exact same form of cancer that she had. And she beat it," Hoppus said, adding that she beat cancer three times. "Twice for breast cancer and one for the same cancer that I have."

The musician, who revealed he has been undergoing chemotherapy, said he hasn't been able to leave his house due to his heightened risk of getting sick with a compromised immune system as the pandemic continues.

"My white cell count is so low after the chemo that I can't get sick, and I have to vigilantly take my temperature and make sure I don't have a fever. If I have a fever, I have to call my doctor and it's a whole thing," he said. 

However, he is remaining optimistic throughout the process. 

"We're beating this cancer," he said. "It's just a matter of time."

In June, Hoppus confirmed in a social media post that he was diagnosed with cancer and had been undergoing treatment for three months. 

"I have cancer. 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," Hoppus wrote on June 24, adding he still has "months of treatment ahead" but is "trying to remain hopeful and positive."

"Can't wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future," he concluded. "Love you all."

One month after revealing his diagnosis, he shared a photo of his bald head.

"The Cancer Haver wishes you all a very happy Fourth of July weekend," he captioned the Instagram picture of himself smiling.

Blink-182's Mark Hoppus Just Revealed What No One Tells You About Cancer

msnNOW 18 July, 2021 - 01:10pm

Blink-182 band member Mark Hoppus recently announced he's battling cancer, but he didn't say much about his diagnosis or situation until a new Q&A, recorded by the YouTube account blink-182 Chile. In addressing questions from fans, Hoppus announced the specific type of cancer he has and revealed some of the realities of battling the disease that people often don't talk about. Read on to find out what Hoppus said.

Read the original article on Best Life.

Mark Hoppus announced that he was battling cancer at the end of June on Twitter, but it wasn't until July that the 47-year-old musician shared what kind of cancer he has. In answer to a fan question, Hoppus said that his cancer is "not bone-related, it's blood-related," noting he has stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, specifically "stage 4A."

While he wasn't quite sure what the "A" stood for, Hoppus said stage 4 means that the cancer has spread to other parts of his body, "which I think is the highest that it goes," he said. The American Cancer Society confirms that, saying late stage diffuse large B-cell lymphoma has a five-year survival rate of 57 percent.

According to Lymphoma.org, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is the most common type of non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It affects your white blood cells, which are key for creating antibodies to fight infections. At the moment, due to the coronavirus, Hoppus said he's stuck at home since his body is prone to contracting the virus.RELATED: 20 Most Commonly Overlooked Cancer Symptoms, According to Doctors.

Hoppus has had four rounds of chemo and expects to have two more. "The first chemo, I felt like I was a zombie that fell onto an electric fence and was just being shocked," he said during the Q&A. "The second round of chemo, I just felt very weak and tired—really just like the worst flu ever. The third round of chemo, I started retching, nauseous, and that whole thing."

This week, Hoppus tweeted that he finished his fourth round of chemo and has been struggling. "Had chemo on Wednesday and felt like hot garbage and haven't really slept since," he wrote on Friday.

But while many of those side effects of chemo are often talked about, Hoppus said one that isn't is called "chemo brain." "Let me tell you something that is real … A side effect of the chemotherapy is you get something called 'chemo brain,'" he said. "I forget things that I should have just on-call, like names, song titles, anything. I just forget stuff. People will be talking to me and five minutes later I'll ask them a question, and they'll be like, 'I just told you that five minutes ago.'"

Hoppus said he's very intentional with what he spends his time doing while receiving chemo treatment, so as not to later associate any of the things he loves with this difficult time in his life.

"I do not listen to any music during chemo. I don't eat any of the foods that I like while I'm actually in the chair. When I'm done, knock wood, with chemo, I don't want to associate anything at all with the chemo," he said.

But one thing was unavoidable, he explained. "I'm already super bummed because one of the chemicals or drugs or whatever that they give me, you have to chew ice while you're getting it because otherwise you'll get mouth sores. And they have the ice that I really like there, like the kind of crushed ice. … Now just thinking about that kind of ice makes me nauseous, so I've already ruined ice for myself," he added with a laugh.And for more health news sent right to your inbox, sign up for our daily newsletter.

Hoppus also revealed that his mother, Kerry Wernz, beat cancer three times—breast cancer twice and diffuse large B-cell lymphoma once. "We have the exact form of cancer," Hoppus said of his mother. "And she beat it, so I've been able to talk to her and bond with her quite a bit."

And Hoppus is determined to do the same. "We're beating this cancer," he said. "It's just a matter of time."

In 2019, Hoppus posted a photo of his mom at one of his concerts, shortly after she beat cancer for the second time. "After months of chemo her doctor cleared her to go out in public and her first outing was to our show at Petco Park last night," he wrote. "This lady is a bad b****. I love you, mom."RELATED: If You Have Type A Blood, You're at Higher Risk for This Kind of Cancer.

It's unclear when this live stream was filmed/posted, as it was captured and re-uploaded by a fan account on YouTube, but in it, Hoppus said he had a doctor's appointment the next day to determine whether his chemotherapy treatments were working.

He has yet to share an additional update.

"Ideally, I go in tomorrow and they say, 'Congratulations, your chemotherapy has worked, and you're all done and you'll never have to think about this cancer again for the rest of your life,'" he said, adding that regardless of the doctor's prognosis, he would be required to finish his next three rounds of chemo "just to make sure."

"We're beating this cancer," he told his fans. "It's just a matter of time."

Hoppus announced last month that he had been first diagnosed in April. Since then, his bandmates have been nothing but supportive.

"Mark is my brother and I love and support him," Travis Barker told E! News. "I will be with him every step of the way on stage and off and can't wait for us to play together again soon."

Tom DeLonge – who left the band in 2015 – added on Twitter, "I too, have been aware of @markhoppus's cancer diagnosis for awhile now. And to add to his own words that he used today, I would also like to say that he is strong, and a super-human who is pushing through this difficult obstacle with a wide-open heart."
