Doctors have discovered a tumor in Michael Douglas‘s throat and are planning to treat it over the next few months.

The 65-year-old Wall Street actor will undergo radiation and chemotherapy to treat the tumor, and doctors expect the Oscar winner to recover fully, his person tells People.

    I hope he gets better soon!

    His wife is a smoker..

    I think his statement of being “optimistic” is scary to me. If it is treatable why does he need to be optimistic.

    I wonder how this will affect the release of his film. But his health should be first.

    I’ve always liked him. I hope he is OK. The stress caused by his jailbird son can’t help. Catherine seems nice. She almost looks as old as him now. Funny how that happened.

    I wish him the best, he’s always been fun to watch on screen and given so many people a start, best wishes to his family too. I can’t wait to see Gordon Gekko return in Wall Street 2 with Sam Witwicky :)

    Wish him all the best!

  • Marieme

    Will keep you in my prayers Michael. God bless you and your family.

    My father passed away 7 months after he was diagnosed with the same thing because he refused to see his doctor for a sore throat the year before. When he choked at dinner 1evening & was given the Heimlich maneuver then went to the hospital it was too late – The tumor was too big & in the “wrong” place to be operated on… I could go on with the depressing months that followed but I won’t.
    Here’s hoping Mr. Douglas went early enough (which it sounds like) & will recover fully.

    The Karmic wheel turneth…who can stop it?
    He treated wife of 23 years like dump, and oldest child was ignored while dad philandered. thirteen year old son took to drink and drugs while dad cheated on wife. Unlike Neil Diamond who was a total gentleman with his divorce settlement, this curmudgeon and his greedy new wife went about making the first wife a villain.
    Phase II enter new upstart wife who hit Hollywood jackpot.
    Quick family to increase stake in wealth.
    Phase III sickness…now will stick to old man with all the “compassion” Next phase….
    You cannot take it with you, Michael. You should have been more generous in life.
    Merry Widow waltz imminent with the Jones’ entire brood dancing away on someone else’s blood, sweat, and tears.
