Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has revealed he’s been diagnosed with prostate cancer. Wyman reported the news on his website, saying the disease was caught early.

“Bill has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. He is undergoing treatment and is expected to make a full recovery as it was caught in the early stages,” the statement read.

Wyman left the Rolling Stones in 1993 and has been focusing on his own band, Bill Wyman’s Rhythm Kings. His most recent solo effort, Back to Basics, was released last summer.

We’re wishing Mr. Wyman a speedy recovery!
