"The doctor said to me, 'Something looks amusing.' They said the spot looked pretty small".
In an interview with US WEEKLY, LARRY KING says that he was diagnosed and treated for lung cancer this SUMMER. "They said the spot looked pretty small". King said that he quit smoking almost 30 years ago, but the doctors said that the lung cancer likely stemmed from his previous years of smoking up to three packs a day. He was a smoker but gave it up after his heart attack in the 1980s.
The 83-year-old USA television star said he got the news during a doctors visit when they chose to do a X-ray of his chest.
The Brooklyn-born broadcasting legend recently received the dreaded diagnosis and went for surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on July 17, he told "Extra".
Since the diagnosis, King has had 20 percent of the affected lung removed. Then the doctor says, "I see a little spot here".
"They went in through my ribs with a tiny camera and snipped it out", he explained. "I have no plans to retire", King said.

"I have beaten so many things health-wise to feel this good now".
