Former Rolling Stones bassist Bill Wyman has been diagnosed with cancer — though there is an opportunity for optimism here.

“He is undergoing treatment and is expected to make a full recovery as it was caught at an early stages,” an official family statement reads.

Wyman last played with the Rolling Stones in 2012, and even that was just for their 50th anniversary reunion. He initially left the band years earlier.

The British musician released a solo album, “Back to Basics,” on June 22, 2015.
