Kurt Vogel Russell is an American actor. He made his television acting debut at 12 in a western series. Russell was nominated for a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor – Motion Picture for his work in Mike Nichols’ Silkwood (1983).
Russell was born in the Massachusetts town of Springfield. His father, Bing, was also a performer. His mother is a ballerina, Louise Julia Russell.
According to the Globe, Kurt Russell has a malignant flesh-eating disease.
The 65-year-old Hateful 8 actor has been spotted with unsightly sores beneath his lower lip, which are thought to be caused by Peutz-Jeghers syndrome (PJS), which has been linked to intestinal cancer.
Cancer.Net claims that people with PJS have a 93 percent lifetime risk of developing cancer.
Kurt’s lesions, according to Dr. Stuart Fischer, are “precancerous lesions that can become aggressive and dangerous if not treated quickly and effectively.”
Dr. Gabe Mirkin, an immunologist and Maryland resident agrees that Kurt “needs rapid diagnostics.” He also believes that PJS is to blame for the sores. He needs to start therapy as soon as possible.
According to the Globe, Kurt and his 71-year-old longtime partner Goldie Hawn have recently fought.
Kurt was set to be inducted into Oklahoma City’s Hall of Great Western Performers in October. His name has already been inscribed on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
But due to an “unexpected medical crisis,” Kurt cannot attend.
In a statement, the actor insisted that he needed surgery, which, according to his doctor, could not be postponed. The Oklahoman reports that he will undergo hip surgery.
The actor, 64, was spotted in New Orleans with bruises and scrapes on his arms and face. Kurt Russell, according to The Globe, suffers from a flesh-eating disease.
