Chimaira star Mark Hunter recovering after second cancer surgery

Rocker Mark Hunter is recovering from his second thyroid cancer surgery.
The former Chimaira singer has updated fans on his condition, posting a shot of himself in the hospital with large sutures on his neck and assuring them he’s feeling OK – but very hungry.
“I wanted to say thank you for the thousands of messages I received wishing me well. I read them all,” he wrote alongside the selfie. “Keeping y’all informed was the catharsis I needed. I went from freaked out to back to myself almost immediately. So thank you again.
“2nd surgery went well. I’m in minor pain but mostly I’m just starving…”
Hunter revealed he had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer at the beginning of the month (Aug19), and had begun treatment after a doctor discovered a “large mass” in his neck.
“The results were positive for Papillary cancer – the most common of thyroid cancers,” the Nothing Remains singer explained. “Luckily, it also has a high cure rate. There is no known cause for this type of cancer, but it’s likely genetic. There weren’t any symptoms either.”
