Michael Douglas to undergo throat cancer treatment

“Wall Street” star Michael Douglas has throat cancer and will undergo chemotherapy, according to his spokesperson.

Representatives for Douglas have confirmed to ABCNews.com that doctors discovered a tumor in the Oscar-winning actor’s throat.

The Oscar-winning actor’s spokesperson told People magazine Monday that doctors expect him to “make a full recovery.”

“I am very optimistic,” Douglas said in a statement.

Representatives for Douglas declined ABCNews.com’s requests for further comment.

The news comes ahead of the premiere of Douglas’ latest movie, “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” due to open in theaters Sept. 24. It’s unclear whether his treatment will affect the promotion of the highly anticipated follow-up to 1987’s “Wall Street.”
