The artist Michael Douglas, 65, is in danger of losing his voice. According to information published by the newspaper "Daily Mail" on last Wednesday, 18, the tumor that Michael has in his throat is advanced.

The British tabloid says that the treatment of chemotherapy and radiation will start next week. Sessions should last about eight weeks and aims to avoid surgery on his larynx. The hospital, according to the newspaper, will be in a hospital in New York.

If you do not take effect, the alternative may be a laryngectomy. The method can leave an actor with a voice quite changed, or even lose it. If treatment is successful, the chances of survival are 60% Michael for the next five years. In an interview with People magazine, Douglas said he was optimistic.
