Grey's Anatomy's Eric Dane Fights Cancer

Grey's Anatomy's McSteamy, Eric Dane, has revealed to OK! magazine that he had been diagnosed with skin cancer last month, after noticing something not right with his lips.

"I went to my dermatologist," the actor revealed. "He said it was malignant tissue caused by sun damage."

Eric underwent a procedure to remove the cancerous cells, by having them frozen off. He said that, because he has sensitive skin, his mouth was pretty messed up for a while. "I didn't eat very well for a couple of weeks and lost a bunch of weight."

All the details on Eric's condition, and how the scare affected his relationship with wife, Rebecca Gayheart, are in OK!'s new issue.

Feel better, McSteamy!
