Michael Douglas Says Throat Cancer Was Caused By HPV

Actor Michael Douglas says that his throat cancer was caused by a virus he contracted by performing oral on women.

The Guardian newspaper published an interview Monday in which Douglas blamed oral for the grave malady that was diagnosed in 2010.

The 68-year-old Douglas has been free of cancer for more than two years after receiving extensive chemotherapy and has returned to acting.

Asked whether he now regretted his years of smoking and drinking, thought to be the cause of the disease, Douglas replied:

“No. Because without wanting to get too specific, this particular cancer is caused by HPV [human papillomavirus], which actually comes about from ‘oral’.”

Douglas, the husband of Catherine Zeta Jones, continued:

“I did worry if the stress caused by my son’s incarceration didn’t help trigger it. But yeah, it’s a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer. And if you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it.”
