The Wall Street legend made headlines in August (10) when he announced he was battling stage four throat cancer. He subsequently underwent months of radiation and chemotherapy treatment.

Douglas revealed earlier this week (begs10Jan11) that the tumour has gone and he's now opened up about the challenges he faced during his health crisis.

The veteran actor admits he became upset when he found out his 10-year-old son, by Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones, had stumbled across a troubling story about his famous dad.
