Mark Hoppus just received some life-changing good news nearly three months after announcing he was battling cancer.
“Just saw my oncologist and I’m cancer free!!” the Blink-182 rocker wrote in an Instagram post on Wednesday. “Thank you God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love.”
Although Hoppus, 49, no longer has stage 4 lymphoma, he is not completely out of the woods.
“Still have to get scanned every six months and it’ll take me until the end of the year to get back to normal,” the “What’s My Age Again?” singer shared, adding, “but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed.”
Mark Hoppus of Blink-182 revealed that he is cancer-free.
He then joked, “Can I get a W in the chat?”
Friends and fans immediately poured in with comments of support and praise.
“F–k yes!!!!” DJ Samantha Ronson commented. “I don’t even know you and this made MY day!!! Awesome!!!”
Ryan Tedder wrote, “WWWWWWWWWW,” signifying a major win for the musician.

After first revealing his diagnosis, he shared in July that the “chemo is working!”
He said at the time he felt “grateful,” “confused” and “also sick” from the chemotherapy.
“But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of the people around me are destroying this cancer,” the “First Date” singer added. “Just gonna keep fighting…”
Just last week, Hoppus posted a photo of his head that showed his hair is growing back — but it appears to be white.

“I mean what the s–t is this? Is my hair growing back white?” he asked, before joking, “If it does I wonder if I’ll look more like George Clooney or Doc Brown? I feel like this is still the cancery peach fuzz hair and maybe my normal hair will start growing again?”
Hoppus then shared that although the hair on his head was growing, the hair on his legs continued to fall off.
“I’ve been in chemotherapy for five months and TODAY the hair on my shins decides it’s time to peace out?” he concluded. “Cancer is weird.”
