We like to think of Larry King as indestructible. And, by all accounts, he is — but even the broadcasting legend has his health scares!

In the new issue of Us Weekly, the TV host revealed he was secretly diagnosed with lung cancer earlier this year.

The 83-year-old said he received the scary news during a routine doctor's appointment, recounting:

"I go for my checkup and they say, 'Let's do a chest X-ray, and the doctor said to me, 'Something looks funny.' They said the spot looked pretty small. … I then did a CAT scan then a PET scan and then he said to me, 'You have lung cancer, but it looks very small, in the beginning stages.'"

Thankfully, the doctor caught the Larry King Now host's illness early. King underwent surgery on July 17 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The surgery was successful — 20 percent of King's lung was removed — however, doctors made a point to tell the TV host that he was "lucky" to have the spot discovered at an early, manageable stage:

"I get fillers. Restylane, Voluma, Rejuviderm. I get all three, and I'm going to continue doing it. It makes me smile in the mirror… I see a pretty good looking guy, I'm just skinny. And I just want to get better."

Aaron later breaks down while discussing his need for painkillers, confessing he will get drugs off the streets illegally if he can't get a prescription for them. Yikes.
