Yesterday we learned that Oscar winner Michael Douglas had a tumor in his throat. Today we hear, it is for sure cancer and he could lose his voice forever! After having trouble swallowing, Douglas went to the doctor and discovered he had a tumor in his larynx, which they say came from decades of smoking. The 65-year-old will start treatment today in New York and is hoping to avoid surgery on his larynx. If that surgery happens it will leave him without a voice. There is some good news; chance of survival is around 60%. The cancer is actually “oesophagus cancer” according to the NY Daily News. Douglas has been forced to cancel any publicity for his upcoming film “Wall Street Money Never Sleeps.” He has already pulled out of a conference he was supposed to attend in Hong Kong in September.
