The 'Basket Case' rockers -- Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tre Cool -- have asked fans to send 'love and positive healing vibes' to the guitarist as he battles the treatable strain of the disease, reported Contactmusic.

White, 41, joined the band full-time in 2012. "We have some news to report regarding our brother Jason White, and wanted you to hear it from us before word spread.

"Jason recently underwent a routine tonsillectomy, and his doctors discovered a treatable form of tonsil cancer. Thankfully they caught it early and he should make a full and speedy recovery. Please join us in sending him love and positive healing vibes during this time," the band said in a statement on their website.
