Tony Iommi's Cancer In Remission

Tony Iommi Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has been cleared of cancer after revealing he is finally in remission.

The 68-year-old, who was diagnosed with lymphoma cancer in 2012, revealed the good news during a plaque-unveiling at Spire Parkway Hospital's Specialist Care Centre in Solihull, where he'd been receiving treatment.

"I am in remission and hopefully, this situation will continue," he shared.

"I came back to hospital straight after we finished a round of European tour dates, and the good news is that everything is alright up to this point.

Iommi said he's aware the cancer could return one day, though it appears chemotherapy and the follow-up treatment "have done the trick."
