British music mogul ANTHONY WILSON has been diagnosed with cancer.
The 56-year-old, who launched the careers of Happy Mondays and New Order, was rushed to hospital earlier last month (14JAN07) to undergo life-saving surgery to remove a kidney.
The cancer was spotted in a return visit to his doctors when - two minutes into a check-up - worried medical staff identified there was something "seriously wrong" with his right lung.
A scan then revealed his right kidney was "completely consumed" by cancer.
Wilson will now begin an intensive chemotherapy course at Manchester's Christie Hospital.
