“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.”
