LONDON (AFP) - Queen guitarist Brian May underwent a scan on Monday as part of a series of urgent tests sparked by fears he could have cancer, the rock star revealed on his website.

The 66-year-old said MRI scans earlier in December had revealed "some abnormalities in the bones - things that the report said needed urgent attention".

"So around Christmas I've been having a succession of blood tests, ultrasounds, and various kinds of scans, to see if they could rule out various kinds of cancer," May wrote.

One of the scans was due on Monday, he said in the blog posting on brianmay.com on December 28.
