According to People magazine, doctors have discovered that 65 year-old actor Michael Douglas has a tumor in his throat.  THAT is the bad news.

Now, the good news: Douglas will under go eight weeks of radiation and chemotherapy. His doctors expect him to make a full recovery!  “I am very optimistic,” Douglas said in a statement.

Let this be a lesson.  Schedule physical checkups with your doctor!  The sooner you catch things like this, the better your chances of beating them!  Believe me, I know.  I lost my mother to colon cancer in 1997.  Even after sensing problems, she put off a doctor’s visit for a YEAR.  Don’t let your fear of needles get in the way of a long, healthy life!
