He will be undergoing radiation and chemotherapy



Michael Douglas' most basic instinct right now is staying healthy.

The Oscar winner has been diagnosed with a tumor in his throat and is seeking immediate treatment, his rep tells E! News.

According to publicist Allen Burry, Douglas will undergo eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy.

No word whether the lump in his throat is benign or malignant, but doctors have given Douglas an excellent prognosis and expect he'll make a full recovery.

"I am optimistic," the 65-year-old actor said in a brief statement.

Douglas will next be seen onscreen reprising his role as disgraced moneyman Gordon Gekko in the anticipated sequel Wall Street 2: Money Never Sleeps, due out Sept. 24.

So sorry to hear this! But I'm glad the prognosis is at least good. Gosh, the poor guy has had a tough year.

That's too bad. I pray he'll be okay. I think I'm out of touch, Amy, because I had no idea he was going through a rough time. See what I get for not turning on the TV.

Is this the same cancer Julie Andrews had?? She did well.

The article said they do not know if it is benign or malignant, so cancer hasn't been determined..... I pray it isn't cancer, but until the tet results are in....I am going to pray cancer is not in the picture...... pray
