Michael Douglas revealed that he lied about having throat cancer. Michael Douglas sat down in an interview with the U.K talk show, This Morning,where he was being interviewed by actor, Samuel L. Jackson, and told him he didn't have throat cancer, but tongue cancer.
He says, “"[The doctor] just took a tongue depressor and, I will never forget it, I saw this look in his eye. And I went, ‘Oh’ and they took a biopsy, and two days later, they said, ‘You have cancer.’”
Douglas revealed that he had tongue cancer and he lied about it because he didn’t want to reveal that information. The doctor told Douglas that he might lose part of his jaw and his tongue.
According to E!Online, Douglas obeyed his doctor’s orders and he was afraid that he may not be able to work again.
He reveals that he is getting better and he has been cancer free for two years. “With my type of cancer, if you’re clean after two years, there's a 95 percent chance it’s not coming back,” he said.
