Michael Douglas lied about his cancer
October 14 , 2013
Michael Douglas didn't reveal everything about his cancer when he mentioned that he had late stage throat cancer; he recently admitted that he had tongue cancer but didn't say so earlier because tongue cancer surgery is quite ugly.
Hence, the doctor suggested he said throat cancer instead. When the actor asked him for the reason, the doctor told him that he could lose a part of his tongue and jaw and "it's not going to be pretty."
However, the good news is that there are better chances of survival for those with tongue cancer and the actor mentioned that his tumor is gone.
