Wood, 69, will need no additional treatment and the upcoming
Rolling Stones tour of Europe will not be affected, the
representative said in a statement in London.
"I'm so grateful for modern screening which picked this up so
early, and would like to thank all the doctors who treated me,"
The statement said the lesion was found during a routine medical
exam and that it had been treated by keyhole surgery. It was not
clear whether the lesion was benign or malignant.
The Rolling Stones are due to start their "No Filter" European
tour in Hamburg, Germany, on Sept. 9.
