The outlet took note that the medications he has been acquiring to fight cancer were thought to have been what actually resulted in the problems. Van Halen is told to be home and resting as of now.
For the previous five years, the guitarist has been going through back and forth from the United States to Germany so as to get radiation treatments.
He thinks that a metal pick he used to take off around in his mouth may be the source of his cancer, and he’s been battling it ever since he was gone through.
Van Halen conversed about the reasons for his cancer diagnosis in a 2015 interview with Billboard, saying, “I used metal picks — they are brass and copper — which I definitely held in my mouth, in the exact place where I acquired the tongue cancer.
Plus, I basically live in a recording studio that is filled with electromagnetic energy. So that is one theory.”
“I mean, I was smoking and doing a lot of drugs and a lot of everything,” he added. “But at the same time, my lungs are totally clear. This is just my own theory, but the doctors say it is possible. Following the information of Van Halen’s recent hospitalization, many have acquired social media to give out their support with the rock ‘n’ roll icon.
