Cancer Type – Throat

Short Bio –  Dustin Hoffman, we all remember him for his inspiring role in “Rain Man”, but very few know that Dustin Hoffman had throat cancer. Read his story here…

Story – After undergoing surgery in 2013, a spokesperson for him stated, “Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.”

His cancer was detected early, and as with anyone in remission, he is routinely screened and underwent preventative treatments.

His cancer diagnoses came on the heels of Michael Douglas’ announcement of HPV Cancer of the throat.

We don’t know what treatment Hoffman had to what caused his cancer, however we are happy he is healthy.
