Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has revealed he had a lung cancer scare earlier this year, but is in remission after surgery.
Wood refused chemotherapy treatment because, in his words, “this hair is going nowhere”.

A smoker for 50 years, Wood gave up when his wife gave birth to twin daughters.
A routine health check three months ago revealed, again in Wood’s words, “a supernova on my left lung”, and he is now urging people to get checked regularly.
It’s a joint celebration ~ Turning one & 70! Thank you all for your good wishes xx #twins #birthday #seventy 🎂🎂🎂
