Flesh-Eating Bacteria Attack Kurt Russell’s Face
The Globe claims that Kurt Russell suffers from a malignant flesh-eating disease.
The 65-year-old Hateful eight actor has reportedly been spotted with unattractive sores beneath his lower lip that are thought to be caused by Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS), which has been related to intestinal cancer.
Cancer.Net reports that “the lifetime risk of cancer in those with PJS may be as high as 93 percent.”
The sores are “precancerous lesions that can become aggressive and dangerous if not treated immediately and properly,” said Dr. Stuart Fischer, who does not treat Kurt.
Kurt “needs immediate tests,” agrees immunologist and Maryland resident Dr. Gabe Mirkin, who also believes that PJS may be to fault for the sores. He requires therapy as soon as possible.
The Globe also reports that Kurt and his 71-year-old longtime partner Goldie Hawn have lately fought.
Kurt was slated to be honored in the Hall of Great Western Performers in Oklahoma City in October. His name is already on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Nevertheless, Kurt cannot go owing to an “unexpected medical situation.”
In a statement, the actor insisted that he required surgery, which, according to his doctor, obviously could not be postponed. According to The Oklahoman, he will have hip surgery.
“I had assumed it could wait, but my doctors say it needs to happen in September.” Russell said, “As much as I would have liked to be there this year, I’m grateful that the museum decided to delay our honor so I could accept this magnificent prize.”
Kurt Russell should be commended for being inducted into the Hall of Great Western Performers! We wish him a speedy recovery from his procedure.
