John Mayer Diagnosed With Serious Throat Disease

Written by John Ritchie on September 19, 2011

John Mayer has cancelled all his upcoming shows and delayed the release of his new album Born And Raised after being diagnosed with a serious throat disease that will put his career on hold for an uncertain period of time. Mayer is suffering from granuloma, which means he has a nodule near his vocal chords which has the potential to become cancerous.

In a statement Mayer said:

This is a temporary setback, though I’m not sure how long or short a period of time it will be. I’ve got the best doctors in the country looking after me and I will be singing and touring again as soon as I get the all clear. Until then I’ll be spending time writing and composing more music and kicking an empty soup can around the West Village.
