Blink-182 icon Mark Hoppus updated fans on his lymphoma diagnosis during a Twitch stream and revealed he is stage 4.
The 49-year-old appeared on a live stream and answered several fans questions on his cancer battle, telling them he has “diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A”
His stream was recorded by a fan and shared onto a fan account on YouTube.
“My classification is diffuse large B-cell lymphoma Stage 4-A, which means, as I understand it, it’s entered four different parts of my body,” the rocker said in the video.
“I don’t know how exactly they determine the four-part of it but it’s entered enough parts of my body that I’m Stage 4, which I think is the highest that it goes. So, I’m Stage 4-A.”
However, Mark feels optimistic about his chemotherapy and added: “We’re beating this cancer. It’s just a matter of time.”
Mark first revealed he has cancer at the end of June when he shared the news on his Instagram Stories.
He said: “For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer.
“It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.”
He continued: “I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive.
“Can’t wait to be cancer-free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all.”
Friends and fans sent words of encouragement to the All The Small Things rocker and Mark later shared another update.

He wrote: “Apologies if I’m oversharing but it’s so surreal to think that this week I’ll take a test that may very well determine if I live or die.
“Thanks to everyone for the positive thoughts and encouragement. I read all your replies and it means the world to me. Thank you.
“I’m going to beat this through chemotherapy or through bone marrow transplants, but either way I’m determined to kick cancer’s ass directly in the nuts. Love to you all. Let’s. Heckin. Go.”
The star has been extremely honest with his battle and is very open when concerned fans ask him questions on his health.
