Newman’s visiting cancer doc

Movie legend PAUL NEWMAN's health problems are worse than he has revealed - he is reportedly making visits to a cancer doctor.

The 83-year-old actor last week missed a fundraising event for his Hole in the Wall Gang children's charity, prompting speculation he has undergone emergency surgery for cancer.

His spokesperson insisted he was "being treated for athlete's foot and hair loss" and nothing more serious.

But Newman has been making secret trips to a oncologist, according to the New York Post.

A fellow patient of the unnamed cancer specialist tells the newspaper, "He's been there a lot, he's even worked out in the waiting room, doing the squat thrusts. Last time, he was in there he had a long beard. (His wife) Joanne Woodward is there waiting for him and being very sweet with the assistants."
