Green Day guitarist Jason White has been diagnosed with tonsil cancer.

“We have some news to report regarding our brother Jason White, and wanted you to hear it from us before word spread,” the band wrote on its official website. “Jason recently underwent a routine tonsillectomy, and his doctors discovered a treatable form of tonsil cancer. Thankfully they caught it early and he should make a full and speedy recovery.”

Jason became an official member of the band in 2012 after spending thirteen years as a touring member.

We wish Jason a speedy recovery during this difficult time!
