Michael Douglas Throat Cancer, Appearing on the thick side but not tanned and optimistic, the Oscar winner was promoting the Oliver Stone directed sequel to Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. He won an Oscar for her portrayal of the greedy Gordon Gekko in 1987.

In a frank interview, Douglas told Letterman that the disease was diagnosed three weeks ago, after the actor had complained of a persistent sore throat. Though doctors at the beginning of summer, the tests did not reveal a cause. So Douglas traveled with his family – wife Catherine Zeta Jones and her two children – to Europe. But I still did not feel better to return and finally a doctor did a biopsy.

Because the cancer is at a late stage, Douglas acknowledged that “ it is intense and have to go at it.”

Fortunately, it remains above the neck and that means that expectations are good, with 80 percent or better chance of recovery, he said.

Douglas’s health is undoubtedly going to be a problem with the film, later this month. He will not be able to make international travel due to treatment and the line can affect his voice. Expect to lose more weight because it burns your throat. He said he has developed a new understanding of people with cancer.

Currently, the star is undergoing radiation and chemotherapy, but doctors have not ruled out surgery after eight weeks. “ I’m pretty lit right now,”joked Douglas.

The two men chatted like old friends with a letter talking about his fear when he was told he needed open-heart surgery in 1999.
