Yauch, also known as MCA, had been in treatment for cancer since 2009 after discovering a tumour in his salivary gland.
He had surgery and radiation therapy and some reports said he was clear of the disease last year.
But the star said that the “reports of my being totally cancer free are exaggerated”.

It is not known whether he died from the disease, the report in Rolling Stone magazine said.
Under the alias MCA, he joined the group co-founded by Mike D, Mix Master Mike, and Ad Roc in 1981.
They went on to sell more than 40m albums worldwide and win a number of Grammies.
The band started out as a hardcore punk outfit called The Young Aborigines in 1979 but switched to hip hop in 1984.

Two years later they launched their critically-acclaimed debut album Licensed To Ill, which spawned the hit singles (You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party) and No Sleep Till Brooklyn.
In addition to his career with the Beastie Boys, Yauch was heavily involved in the movement to free Tibet and co-organised the Tibetan Freedom Concerts of the late Nineties.

He is survived by his wife, Dechen Wangdu and daughter Tenzin Losel Yauch.
