"I have cancer," Mark wrote. "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," he went on. "Can't wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future."

He followed up the announcement with a post on his Instagram story, sharing a photo of himself in the hospital with the caption: "One cancer treatment, please."

Drummer Travis, who has been bandmates with Mark since 1998, shared his sentiments in a statement to E! News.

"Mark is my brother and I love and support him," Travis said.

"I will be with him every step of the way onstage and off," he added, "and can't wait for us to play together again soon."

He also shared a photo with Mark on his Instagram story, writing simply: "Love you @markhoppus."

Meanwhile guitarist Tom DeLonge, who left Blink-182 in 2015, tweeted his own message of support, calling his former bandmate "a super-human who is pushing through this difficult obstacle with a wide-open heart."

I too, have been aware of @markhoppus’s cancer diagnosis for awhile now. And to add to his own words that he used today, I would also like to say that he is strong, and a super-human who is pushing through this difficult obstacle with a wide-open heart. 👊🏼#WeHaveHisBack
