On Monday Black Sabbath Icon Tony Iommi's Cancer In Remission was a top story. Here is the recap: (Classic Rock) Black Sabbath guitarist Tony Iommi has revealed that his cancer is in remission. Iommi was diagnosed with lymphoma in 2012 and recently said he lives with the fear that it could come back at any time. But after returning home to the UK following the European leg of Sabbath's The End tour, Iommi went for a check-up and says he was given the good news.

Speaking at an event to unveil a plaque at Solihull's Spire Parkway Hospital's Specialist Care Centre, Iommi tells the Birmingham Mail: "I am in remission and hopefully, this situation will continue.

"I came back to hospital straight after we finished a round of European tour dates, and the good news is that everything is all right up to this point. The chemotherapy and the follow-up treatment appear to have done the trick - but I'm aware that it could come back one day.

"I have a blood test every six weeks at my GP's, and I come in here at regular intervals for check-ups. That's something that I'll have to live with for the rest of my life, looking for any warning signs that it might be rearing its ugly head again." Read more - here.
