LONDON– Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has actually exposed that he feared the worst after being diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year.

The 70-year-old guitarist says he thought it may be “time to say goodbye,” after a doctor performing routine tests provided the news that he “had this supernova burning away on my left lung.” The artist states he simply told the physician to obtain it from him.

Wood told The Mail on Sunday that he had actually decided not to have chemotherapy if outcomes turned out to be bad. He states he chose, “I wasn’t going to lose my hair. This hair wasn’t going anywhere.”

He thanked physicians in May for treating a little sore in his lung and will undergo checks every 3 months.
