The Specials - Terry Hall's Cancer Scare31 January 2013
The Ghost Town hitmaker, 53, was given the bad news during a visit to a dentist who noticed a lump on the British pop star's tongue.
Doctors removed the growth and Hall was given the all-clear last summer (12), so the former heavy smoker has vowed never to touch cigarettes again following his health scare.
He tells Britain's Mojo magazine, "You try everything to stop - (including books by) Allen Carr and all that. But you're told something like that and you'll never put one near your mouth again."
