Doctors predict full recovery as Bruce completes 7-week treatment programme for tongue tumour

Iron Maiden frontman Bruce Dickinson is battling cancer, the band have confirmed.

He's just completed a seven-week course of treatment after a tumour was discovered on his tongue.

The 56-year-old is expected to make a full recovery, and he'll be concentrating on his health until the middle of the year.

Maiden say in a statement: "Just before Christmas, Bruce visited his doctor for a routine check-up. This led to tests and biopsies, which revealed a small cancerous tumour at the back of his tongue. A course of chemotherapy and radiology was completed yesterday.
