Eddie Van Halen has reportedly been flying to Germany to get radiation treatment for throat cancer
As rumours continue to swirl on the health of Van Halen guitarist Eddie Van Halen‘s health status, TMZ has now reported that the guitarist has been flying to Germany for a number of years to get radiation treatment to combat throat cancer.
The following is an excerpt from the TMZ article posted today:
“Eddie Van Halen has been flying between the United States and Germany to get treatment for throat cancer … and we’ve learned he’s been doing it very quietly for years.
As for how Eddie developed the cancer … we’re told he believes it’s from a metal guitar pick he used more than 20 years ago.
Seems Eddie would cradle the pick in his mouth, and he’s been told that could well have been the source of the cancer, despite the fact he was a heavy smoker….
Our sources say … Eddie has flown to Germany for 5 years to get radiation treatment, and for the most part it’s worked to keep the disease in check.”
