Kilmer seemed to make the admission during a Reddit Q&A session with fans last week.
Val Kilmer appears to have confirmed that he has been suffering from cancer after all, a few months after the actor had denied that was suffering from the disease.
The former Batman and Top Gun star, 57, was speaking to his fans in a Reddit AMA (Ask Me Anything) session last Wednesday (April 26th), and responded to a question regarding the speculation late last year around his health after Michael Douglas had said Kilmer was “dealing with” throat cancer.
At the time, Kilmer had denied Douglas’ claims in a statement via Facebook saying that he had “no cancer whatsoever”. Now, however, he seems to have tracked back on that, saying that he has undergone “a healing of cancer”.

The two actors worked together on 2003 western 'The Missing'.
Val Kilmer has been making his love for Cate Blanchett very clear on Twitter over the past few days.
It all began on Friday when Kilmer decided to share that he once flew the whole way to Australia to meet Blanchett, but encountered her husband first.
While the actor gave no explanation as to why he thought now was the time to profess his love for his former co-star, perhaps coincidently he had just shared an article titled: ‘Val Kilmer’s Twitter feed is a hidden gem of bizarre, star-studded stories’.
The music scene of Austin, Texas becomes tainted by lust and illict desires as two aspiring songwriters named Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling) become entwined in two overlapping love triangles with a major player in the music business named Cook (Michael Fassbender) - who encourages them to take their music careers further - and a charming waitress (Natalie Portman). As much as their lives are about making it in the industry and becoming world renowned successes, their lives get more complicated by disloyalty, temptation and infatuation with each other, pushing all of them ultimately further away. Can love last when betrayal lies at every corner?

The actor currently has a swollen tongue, but has denied he is suffering from cancer.
Val Kilmer struggled to speak during an appearance on Thursday at a screening of the film version of his play Citizen Twain.
The actor had been forced to deny rumours he was suffering from cancer earlier this month, after friend Michael Douglas said he was, "dealing with exactly what I had, and things don't look too good for him.”
But at the event in Los Angeles Kilmer told the audience he was still dealing with a swollen tongue, but declined to comment on his health any further.
Contrary to friend and former co-star Michael Douglas' bleak diagnosis earlier this week, Kilmer clarified that he isn't suffering from throat cancer.
The 56 year old movie star has denied he’s suffering from cancer in a Facebook post he released late on Tuesday (November 1st), saying that his former co-star Douglas, although he means well, is “misinformed” about the situation and they actually haven’t seen each other in two years.

Bruckheimer said that he had recently caught up with Cruise to "discuss" working on the long-awaited 'Top Gun' sequel.
After months of speculation, it would appear that work on Top Gun 2 has finally begun, with producer Jerry Bruckheimer tweeting a picture of himself with Tom Cruise, the star of the iconic original movie, saying that they had met specifically to “discuss” the project.
The 72 year old production heavyweight seems to have at last confirmed that one of the most eagerly-anticipated sequels in movie history is actually a going concern, a full three decades after the first Top Gun came out in 1986.

The actor has revealed some juicy ‘Top Gun 2’ details on his Facebook page.
Nearly 30 years after we were first introduced to Iceman and Maverick, it seems a sequel to Top Gun could finally be on its way, according to star Val Kilmer. In a Facebook status shared late on Monday night, the actor seemed to confirm not only his involvement in the sequel, but also that of Tom Cruise and director Francis Ford Coppola.
Val Kilmer seems to be onboard for Top Gun 2.
The 'Batman' star is said to have been rushed to hospital this past Monday.

The gossip site also reports that the 55 year old’s family were upset because they felt the actor had ignored his throat problems and allowed them to get worse.
In the wake of the Cannes Film Festival, attention turns to films in the pipeline, as Juno Temple and Michael Cera dish the dirt on Magic Magic and we hear surprise casting news about The Man From U.N.C.L.E. and the Elton John biopic Rocketman...
Some were shocked and others relieved when news broke this week that Tom Cruise has dropped out of starring in Guy Ritchie's new Man From U.N.C.L.E. movie. Like Mission: Impossible, it's based on a 1960s TV series about a secret espionage agency. Now Henry Cavill (soon to be seen as the Man of Steel) has emerged as the front-runner to replace Cruise as spy leader Napoleon Solo.
Meanwhile, Juno Temple arrived to talk about her role as a mentally disturbed young woman in the upcoming film Magic Magic. She stars opposite Michael Cera, and mentions a wrenching confrontation as her favourite scene in the film, which was screened as part of the Director's Fortnight at Cannes.
Get a good look at the above photo, readers, because it's not too often you see pictures of the multiple-Oscar nominated film director Terrence Malick doing his day job. Malick was with a few of the cast who are appearing in his as-yet untitled music, including Michael Fassbender, Savanna Welch, Rooney Mara and a spotlight-stealing Val Kilmer -it's not often you can say that - at the Fun Fun Fun Festival in Austin, Texas where he is shooting. Though the director tried to hide his face with a large hat and sunglasses combo, there was no such shyness from Kilmer who, according to the Indiewire, joined band the Black Lips on stage before wielding a chainshaw, cutting his 'hair' (it looked like a wig) and then being 'forcibly removed'. Nice one Val.

A good example: Pollock was suicidal, maniacal and violent throughout his 44-year life. The first sentence of Naifeh's and Smith's book -- the very first sentence -- is this quote from Pollock: "I'm going to kill myself." Explains a lot, but for some odd reason, Harris only hints at Pollock's suicidal tendencies in his long-anticipated film.

As an actor portraying the inner turmoil of Jackson Pollock -- the revolutionary abstractionist known for his splatter-and-drip painting style -- Ed Harris gives a commanding, potent performance in "Pollock" that is a torrential mix of the artist's chaotic talent and his more chaotic psyche.
As a director depicting Jackson Pollock's world, Ed Harris (yes, he did double-duty on this film) captures with vivid, lively authenticity both the astute yet pretentious buzz of the 1940s Manhattan art scene and his subject's tumultuous personal life, marked by hard drinking and a stormy long-term affair with fellow painter Lee Krasner (Marcia Gay Harden).
Together Ed Harris the actor and Ed Harris the director create an imposing, invigorating cinematic biography fueled by its subject's stubborn, manic energy and his strangely uncommunicative charisma.
