Chic co-founder Nile Rodgers reveals he has had kidney cancer surgery

', Rodgers said that he had missed the August gig because of an e.Coli infection - and while being treated for it, doctors discovered a growth on his kidney that turned out to be cancerous - or "two different cancers within one mass".

During a hit-fuelled set at Glastonbury earlier this year, Rodgers reflected on being cancer-free, after being diagnosed with an "extremely aggressive" form of cancer around six years ago.

"I would have never believed that my body would be invaded by another cancer", he wrote on his Planet C blog. "I'm Done. 2018 here I come!", Rodgers explores his journey from that initial cancer diagnosis, and how ever since he's "attacked life with gusto I didn't realize I'd had".
