The singer and bassist publicly revealed his diagnosis last month.
Mark Hoppus has received the "best possible news" that his cancer treatment appears to be working.
The Blink 182 singer and bassist publicly revealed last month that he had been diagnosed with stage 4 diffuse large B-cell lymphoma.
He shared another update yesterday via Twitter, announcing his chemotherapy so far looked to be a success.
He tweeted: "Scans indicate that the chemo is working! I still have months of treatment ahead, but it's the best possible news.
"I'm so grateful and confused and also sick from last week's chemo. But the poison the doctors pump into me and the kind thoughts and wishes of people around me are destroying this cancer.
"Just gonna keep fighting..."

Hoppus revealed his diagnosis on Twitter in June, telling fans he had been diagnosed in April and has been receiving chemotherapy since.
"For the past three months I've been undergoing chemotherapy for cancer. I have cancer. It sucks and I'm scared," he tweeted.
"At the same time I'm blessed with incredible doctors and family and friends to get me through this," the 49-year-old added. "I still have months of treatment ahead of me but I'm trying to remain hopeful and positive. Can't wait to be cancer free and see you all at a concert in the near future. Love to you all."
The pop-punk rocker formed Blink-182 in Southern California back in 1992, later spawning hits 'What's My Age Again?', 'I Miss You', and All The Small Things'.
Blink-182's radio-friendly brand of pop punk won them fans around the world throughout the 1990s and early 2000s. Take Off Your Pants and Jacket, released in 2001, became one of the biggest albums of the decade, with the band selling more than 50 million records in total.
