Hollywood actor talks throat tumour diagnosis on Facebook

Hollywood star, Val Kilmer, has taken to Facebook to reassure fans following recent media speculation surrounding the 55-year-old star's health.

Concerned that his legion of fans and followers were being given inaccurate information, the Batman Forever star, said: "Thank you all for your sweet support. But I have not had a tumour, or a tumour operation, or any operation."

Opening up about his current condition, the actor informed fans that while he has indeed been receiving medical treatment, the press reports did not reflect the reality of the situation, saying: "I had a complication where the best way to receive care was under the watchful eye of UCLA ICU."

Determined to set the record straight, the dad-of-two said: "Again, no tumour, no surgery."

The actor is upbeat and positive despite his actual medical issues, joking: "Then I'll do what's best and be back at it sooner than you can shake a gossip column at an out-of-work actor…"

Aw, get well soon Val!
