WHOLE TOUR CANCELLED, BILL HAS TO GO TO SURGERY OTHERWISE HE'LL NEVER BE ABLE TO SING AGAIN!!!!
From the Bild magazine website:
Hamburg-Has he endangered his health for his fans?
Singer Bill Kaulitz(18) of germany's most successful rock band Tokio Hotel (DDM) has to go through a surgery of his larynx!
The doctors diagnosed a cyst on one of his vocal chords, that (the cyst) has to be removed immediately. Without a surgery his voice could be affected so strongly that he would never be able to sing again. The completely sold out Europe-tour with concerts in Italy, Sweden, Slowenia, Serbia, Finnland, Danmark, Norway and a show in Dortmund have to be cancelled.
A HUGE SHOCK FOR MILLIONS OF FANS ACROSS THE WORLD!
Bill has already been in supervision of doctors in the beginning of last week, because of laryngitis, says TH-producer and manager David Jost. A further examination showed that a nub has developed on one of the vocal chords, which makes it impossible for the laryngitis to heal. The cyst has to be removed in a surgery this week.
How can such a cyst develop? Mostly a nub on the vocal chords, a so called singers knot, develops because of an overstraining of the voice, says Doctor Julia Vent from the University-Hospital Cologne. If a singer sings too loud or with wrong pressure such a nub can develop. That is encouraged, if the vocal chords are already affected by an infection. A cyst in the larynx is a small bubble filled with liquid. The surgery is made by inserting a pipe through the mouth.
With help of a microscope the cyst is bobba out with tiny, sharp scissors. After the surgery Bill has to go through a several-weeks long rehabilitation, to avoid long-term damage. Producer David Jost: We really hope, that the fans understand that Bill's health has to be in the foreground.
