Douglas Treating Throat Tumor As 'Curable Disease'

Wednesday, 01 Sep 2010 09:21 AM

 

Michael Douglas is vowing to beat cancer.

The 65-year-old "Wall Street" star said in an interview with People magazine that he expects to make a full recovery after a walnut-sized tumor was found on the base of his tongue in early August. Douglas is currently undergoing an eight-week course of radiation and chemotherapy in New York. His doctors said there is no evidence that the cancer has spread.

Douglas' wife, Catherine Zeta-Jones, said the most difficult part of the ordeal has been seeing her husband fatigued "because Michael is never tired." Zeta-Jones, who has two children with Douglas, said she was furious that doctors didn't detect the throat tumor earlier. Douglas said he spent months seeking a cause for throat and ear pain.
