Larry King has been secretly fighting lung cancer this year. "I go for my checkup and they say, 'Let's do a chest X-ray, and the doctor said to me, 'Something looks amusing, '" he recalls. "On July 17, I had the surgery here at Cedars", King says.

Because Larry's malignant was caught in the early stages, he was thankfully given the all-clear after it had been removed, taking off 20 percent of his lung with it.

"They went in through my ribs with a tiny camera and snipped it out", he said. "The doctor said to me, 'It was malignant but you were in the first stage. Let's do a CAT scan, ' so they do a CAT scan, and they say, 'Let's do a PET scan"...

Though the 83-year-old TV icon has since recovered from the disease, King recalled the moment that the doctor initially noticed the tumors in an X-ray. I've gone through a lot in my life.

King hasn't smoked a cigarette since his heart attack in the late '80s.
