As always, Polson frontman Bret Michaels has kept his fans in the loop regarding his health issues. Over the years, Michaels has been candid about his with diabetes, as well as dealing with the discovery of a hole in his heart, a stroke-like TIA, and an injury-based brain hemorrhage.

On Friday (January 17th), Bret Michaels posted directly to fans, writing on Instagram:

After a very recent kickoff to the New Year, a physical & MRI, it has been brought to my attention that I have torn my right shoulder rotator cuff which would answer the question of why it looks like a lump or bone was sticking out of my right shoulder.

A little more complex, I will also have to undergo a procedure to remove skin cancer that was detected after a recent biopsy. I'm in the hands of incredible specialists who are both positive for great outcomes. It may slow me down a bit at the beginning of the year, but if God (is) willing I promise this year will be awesome. Just a few less solo shows & special events until I get this all squared up.

As always, continuing diabetic maintenance to keep on rocking in 2020! - Bret Michaels⁣
