Blink-182's Mark Hoppus has offered another update on his cancer battle, sharing a CT scan of an apparent tumour on his shoulder. Additionally, the bassist said that he is due for a doctor's appointment that could spell out his chances of surviving his recent diagnosis.

"Apologies if I'm oversharing but it's so surreal to think that this week I'll take a test that may very well determine if I live or die," Hoppus began in a tweet.

"Thanks to everyone for the positive thoughts and encouragement. I read all your replies and it means the world to me. Thank you," he continued. "I'm going to beat this through chemotherapy or through bone marrow transplants, but either way I'm determined to kick cancer's ass directly in the nuts."

Hoppus has yet to reveal the type of cancer he is seeking treatment for, but had previously shared that he has been undergoing chemotherapy for the past three months. Throughout his most recent updates, he shared photos of his hair loss journey and explained that he is keeping in good spirits despite his condition.
