    Actor Michael Douglas Being Treated for Throat Cancer

    Receiving radiation treatments

    Oscar-winner Michael Douglas has a tumour in his throat.


    A representative for the Wall Street star has confirmed that doctors discovered the condition and the 65-year-old is set to undergo eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy.
    Damn, and he had quit smoking too. Hope he does pull through.

    One of my favorite actors. I know that Catherine had smoked as well but gave it up for their children. Best of luck to him.

    ETA: Dr. Nancy Snyderman gives a very good explanation of his treatment:

    Wow! Hope he makes a full recovery. It would be a shame if he weren't around to see his younger children grow up.

    I knew something was up last night when I saw him in a tease for the 11pm NBC Detroit News, but all I heard was his name and "Health Scare". I really hope he can pull through this and have a full recovery.

    On a different note...How eerie is it how much he's looking like his Dad now? It's always been there, but now that Michael's older, wow!!

    I heard that the prognosis is good. Did anyone catch what kind of tumor it is?
