Tony Wilson diagnosed with the disease
Joy Division collaborator Tony Wilson has been diagnosed with cancer.
Wilson is due to start a course of chemotherapy course at Manchester’s Christie Hospital immediately.
He said: “I wasn’t too upset when I was told the news. I just think you have to go with it and I see it as another step in life’s adventure.”
The disease was discovered during a routine visit to the doctor. Minutes into his check-up, the doctor identified that something was “seriously wrong” with his right lung.
After having the lung drained a scan revealed that his right kidney was “completely consumed” by cancer. It was removed and he is now set for two five-day treatments at the hospital, reports BBC News.
