Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch Diagnosed with Cancer

The Beastie Boys' album and summer tour have been postponed after band member Adam Yauch disclosed that he is suffering from cancer.

In a posting on the band's website, Yauch reveals a cancerous tumour in his left salivary gland will need surgery. He is expected to fully recover.

"I just need a little time to get this in check and then we'll release the record and play some shows," he wrote, BBC News reports.

"The good news is, they did scans of my whole body and it's only localized in this one area, and it's not in a place that affects my voice, so ... that's nice. That's convenient," he laughed. "So it's a little bit of a setback — it's a pain in the ass — but this is something that's very treatable, and in most cases ... they're able to completely get rid of it, and people don't have continuing problems with it, and they've caught it early and it's not anywhere else in my body. So, that's the good news," MTV.com reports.

He also sent a message to fans who might have made plans to see the band later in the year. "I apologise for anyone who's made plans or was psyched to come to these shows," he said, NME.com reports.
