Everyone calm down. Jon Hamm is not dying of throat cancer.
The "Mad Men" actor will undergo routine surgery this week to remove a polyp that has developed on his vocal cords. Unfortunately, the online rumor mill painted his condition as much more dire.
"That's good to put that out there. Thanks, guys. Thanks a lot," he said jokingly.
In an interview with the AP, Hamm classified the polyp as a "simple injury," adding that it's "something that develops on your vocal cord from overuse because I talk a lot. Other than that, believe it or not, I'm healthy as a horse. Hoarse, get it?" he joked.
Check out Hamm speaking with the AP about his condition below.
