On September 25th, it was reported that Tsunku (45)’s laryngeal cancer was in complete remission. However, on October 17th he relayed through his agency that he was hospitalized once again for an operation due to his cancer.
According to his agency, his vocal cord swelling and pain was not getting any better. Upon inspection of his vocal cords, they found more cancer. All of this took place after the announcement of him being in complete remission.
Tsunku commented, “I will be recovering from this procedure for a little while and I will come back once I am feeling better, so please wait for me! I am sorry for causing you all various troubles and worries!”
