After years of speculation, actor Val Kilmer is ready to be speak about his battle with cancer.

During an Reddit AMA, Kilmer shared the truth after Michael Douglas recently claimed that he had tongue cancer. Val said, "He was probably trying to help me cause press probably asked where I was these days, and I did have a healing of cancer, but my tongue is still swollen altho healing all the time. Because I don’t sound my normal self yet people think I may still be under the weather.”

Back in October, Douglas told an audience in London, "Things don’t look too good for him. My prayers are with him. That’s why you haven’t heard too much from Val lately."

After Douglas' comments, Kilmer went on the defense, saying, "I love Michael Douglas but he is misinformed. The last time I spoke to him was almost two years ago, when I asked him for a referral for a specialist to get a diagnosis for a lump in my throat, which prevented me from continuing a tour of my play 'CITIZEN TWAIN.' I ended up using a team at UCLA and have no cancer whatsoever.”
