During the summer of 2010, Michael Douglas began undergoing radiation and chemotherapy to treat tongue cancer, although he initially said he had throat cancer to "protect his career" since he could have needed potentially disfiguring surgery. On Jan. 11, 2011, he said in an interview that the tumor was gone, but would need monthly screenings because there is a very high chance the cancer could return within two to three years.
