Aerosmith Cancer Terror

(Rock News Desk) Aerosmith's Tom Hamilton has revealed his terror at being forced to undergo experimental surgery after his cancer returned.

The bassist was treated for tumours on his tongue five years ago, and after chemotherapy was given the all-clear. But recently the disease came back, and it spread into his throat.

With his ability to speak and sing at risk, he turned to Dr Steven Zeitels, a specialist who has devised a new form of laser treatment for cancer. But it had never been tried on the tongue area before. "I was just terrified. I really thought, 'Okay, I'm really looking at not being able to talk," Hamilton tells KSAT. "The second I had a tiny bit of consciousness after the procedure, the first thing I did was make a sound. It felt normal and it sounded normal." more on this story
