Michael Douglas and Throat Cancer

By Dr's Adam and David Raben Audiences were stunned to learn first-hand on the David Letterman show that the actor, Michael Douglas had cancer of the larynx (or voice box, or throat). The audience reaction to Mr. Douglas became even more dramatic when he stated he had stage IV (or stage 4). The immediate reaction from the host, audience and then amazingly the newswire services was that he was in fact "incurable" since he had stage IV cancer.
