Doctors discovered the early stage lesion in a medical exam and immediately took action. Most likely, Wood will not need any further treatment for the condition. The Rolling Stones plan to proceed with their upcoming European tour as scheduled. Dates will begin in September.

Wood replaced Mick Taylor in the band in 1975.
