Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine said his cancer battle is heading in the right direction.

The musician recently told Rolling Stone that while he’s not in remission yet, he’s been feeling better.

“I’m on the other side of the majority of the treatment, and I feel really strong,” the vocalist explained. “After the radiation, the guy said all of my test results looked amazing. ‘You look like you’re in a stage 1 and you’re supposed to be in stage 3 right now.’ And then the oncologist said the same thing: ‘You look really strong.’ So we kept moving through the process.”

The singer shared that he was diagnosed with a squamous cell carcinoma on the base of his tongue. “It’s a tumor that you get in your mouth, and it had gone from one side of my mouth, and it had also gone to two lymph nodes. So it was pretty serious,” says the frontman.
