Blink-182‘s Mark Hoppus will be undergoing an important test this week that he says may determine the fate of his cancer battle.

In a tweet over the weekend, Hoppus wrote, “Apologies if I’m oversharing but it’s so surreal to think that this week I’ll take a test that may very well determine if I live or die.”

“Thanks to everyone for the positive thoughts and encouragement,” he added. “I read all your replies and it means the world to me. Thank you.”

Hoppus, who revealed news of his cancer diagnosis in June, also shared a photo from a recent X-ray, which seems to indicate a tumor that’s grown in his shoulder. He hasn’t revealed what kind of cancer he has, but he did share that a bone marrow transplant might be a possible treatment.

“I’m going to beat this through chemotherapy or through bone marrow transplants, but either way I’m determined to kick cancer’s a** directly in the nuts,” Hoppus wrote. “Love to you all. Let’s. Heckin. Go.”
