Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch has Cancer

Vegetarian Adam Yauch, better known as "MCA" of the Beastie Boys announced back in July in a video at that he has a "very treatable" cancerous tumor in his left parotid gland, which is a gland that resides in the throat. It is also in his lymph node, but has not spread to any other area of his body.

Because of this health issue, the Beastie Boys are postponing both their upcoming tour and the release of their next album entitled "Hot Sauce Committee Part I".

According to Yauch, the surgery and subsequent radiation will not affect his voice.

To view the message from Yauch himself with fellow groupmember Adam "Ad-Rock" Horovitz at his side, visit the Beastie Boys' Official Website.
