Michael Douglas
says his near-death bout with throat cancer was caused by an STD he picked up while giving oral sex. TMI, Michael!!!!

Douglas dropped the bombshell in an interview with the Guardian UK -- telling the paper that his particular form of throat cancer was caused by human papillomavirus (HPV) that was contracted from "cunnilingus" ... a.k.a performing oral sex on a female.

He explains, "It's a sexually transmitted disease that causes cancer. If you have it, cunnilingus is also the best cure for it." The last part is NOT supported by doctors.

FYI -- HPV is more famously known to cause cervical and anal cancer.

Douglas was diagnosed with stage 4 throat cancer back in 2010. He underwent weeks of radiation and chemo.

He has been cancer free for over two years.

Michael Douglas is a chain smoker!!! I find it funny that he failed to mention that, and unless he and his wife have an open marriage, I doubt that it was HPV...however, if they ae both sleeping around, in addition to his chain smoking issues, well, he probably has two contributing factors that helped cause his throat cancer, with the lead being the smoking.

Way too much info and very embarrassing for his already struggling wife. What an idiot!! I think his smoking had something more to do with it.

Catherine, I wouldn't blame you if you slugged him for saying that. Your kids and all their friends are going to know such private things about you now. And what teenager doesn't love their parents airing embarrassing details about their sex life and subsequent STD'S. I know....their kids!

he was married to first wife 1977 to 2000.. he married catherine in 2000 and had first child with catherine in 2000.. so he was cheating on first wife with catherine well before he divorced first wife. maybe first wife gave it to him from who she cheated with or he got it from another woman in between or even catherine if it is true that cancer cells can be dormant for decades. crazy.

He just did great work in the Liberace movie & I was thinking so high about him just this week + now this unnecessary private comment makes me dislike him.
What is wrong with these celebs thinking they have to say every private thing?
He blew it in more ways than one!

Time to do a full physical with your doctor. You may get lung cancer beyond your throat.
