"It’s a stage 4," MICHAEL DOUGLAS told DAVID LETTERMAN about his cancer on Tuesday night.
The Wall Street star opened up about his battle with thrat cancer on the Late Show with David Letterman admitting he smoked and drank and "this particular type of cancer is caused by alcohol and drinking."
As for his prognosis, the screen legend says, "The big thing you’re always worried about is it spreading, so I am head and neck. I am above the neck, so nothing’s gone down, and the expectations are good."
Now Michael’s getting radiation and chemotherapy which he says is "gonna be an eight-week struggle.” He said his throat "hurts a lot. It comes in in waves… My heart goes out to all the families and all the supporters and now I understand it."
