This is some bloody great news - Mark Hoppus is cancer-free.

The Blink-182 bassist has revealed on social media that he has been given the good news by his oncologist, three months after revealing that he was battling an aggressive form of lymphoma.

Mark wrote in an Instagram post: "Just saw my oncologist and I'm cancer free!!

"Thank you God and universe and friends and family and everyone who sent support and kindness and love. Still have to get scanned every six months and it’ll take me until the end of the year to get back to normal but today is an amazing day and I feel so blessed. Can I get a W in the chat?"

The rocker revealed in June that he was battling cancer and was admitted he was "scared" about what could happen to him.

Mark, 49, wrote on social media at the time: "For the past three months I’ve been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer. It sucks and I’m scared, and at the same time I’m blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this.

“I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I’m trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can’t wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the hopefully near future. Love to you all."

In a later update in July, Mark revealed that he had received a test result that indicated that his treatment was working.

He tweeted: "Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatments ahead, but it's the best possible news. Just gonna keep fighting..."
