    Rare form of disease hasn't spread past tongue, prognosis said to be good

    "Peter Tork, a former member of the 1960s pop group the Monkees, says he has a rare form of head and neck cancer, but the prognosis is good.

    The 67-year-old Tork had surgery Wednesday in New York. His spokeswoman says he is doing well and will begin radiation treatment after a short recovery period.

    He announced on his Web site Tuesday that he has been diagnosed with adenoid cystic carcinoma on the lower region of his tongue. He says it's an uncommon but slow-growing type of cancer, and it hasn't spread beyond the initial site."


    Best Wishes for a speedy recovery to Peter, the Monkees were my fav when I was in early elementary school :) (ahhh the 60's :D)

    I was 12 when the Monkees' TV show started and I adored Micky Dolenz, but I actually loved all of them. I hope Peter makes a speedy recovery, he is a great guy.

    Funny, didn't see any of you guys at the wedding when I married him!! My Monkees CDs are ones I always take on long car trips!! When I hit 5'3" I said I wasn't going to grow anymore because he was 5'3". I'm probably closer to 5'4" now but when asked I ALWAYS say 5'3".
