Michael Douglas is still struggling to come to terms with his cancer diagnosis because he’s yet to sit back and “digest” the news as he’s been solely focusing on beating the disease.
The Wall Street star underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatment for throat cancer in October and is making goodprogress in his battle to regain full health.

And he insists he hasn’t contemplated his mortality as a result of the health crisis – because overcoming the disease has been the only thing on his mind.

He tells The Hollywood Reporter, “I haven’t really digested it yet, truth be told. As I looked through the stats, I didn’t think of this as life and death; I just saw it as an illness to get over. So I didn’t dig into the bottom of my soul to see what I could see.”
