Beastie Boy

Has 'Very Treatable' Cancer

7/20/2009 3:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Beastie Boy Adam Yauch took to YouTube this morning to announce he'll be having surgery next week on a "treatable" cancerous tumor in his salivary gland -- but is only calling it a "little bit of a setback."



Though the group had to cancel upcoming shows and is pushing back their new record release, Yauch promises "We'll be back doing it soon."

Hey Ant, moron.
Do you think really think Adam Yauch is going to read your comment. He will never read your comment. Why don't you wish good luck to the Easter Bunny and Santa while your are at it.

Hi number 11. What's it like hiding behind the internet? I know he won't read my comment. I don't even know him. I'm making a point that people like you are a waste of space. Thank you for proving my point.

I hope it is 'very treatable'. Get well soon! I love the Beastie Boys........We all need to watch the processed foods, cell phones, etc. That is why people are getting cancer like it's the flu.
