YUKI (rice, RAPHAEL) has announced that he has been diagnosed with laryngeal cancer. He was hospitalized when he started having problems with his voice and had underwent biopsy surgery when he received the diagnosis, which was detected early. It’s possible that the cancer may have spread throughout the rest of his body, but he has yet to undergo a full body examination. Eight months before, he was diagnosed with vocal fold leukoplakia, in which a lesion formed on the surface of his vocal fold.
As for Yuki’s live schedule, he will only perform as much as his health permits and venues are being consulted to extend the refund period, should anything happen.
