Michael Douglas' Cancer: Have Years of Smoking and Drinking Caught Up With Him?
22-Aug-2010 (one comment)

Hollywood icon Michael Douglas' years of smoking and drinking is the probable culprit for his throat cancer diagnosis, according to one doctor who said the "Wall Street" star's condition is likely curable.

"That combination is, unfortunately, a recipe for development of a throat cancer," Dr. Kenneth Hu, co-director of the Head and Neck Institute at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York, told "Good Morning America" today. "I think the fact that he's getting radiation means it's curable."

News of a tumor in Douglas' throat was released Monday. People magazine is reporting that the star known for his gravelly voice will soon undergo eight weeks of chemotherapy and radiation.
