The National Enquirer claimed the famously tanned actor, 72, was recently diagnosed with the disease and allegedly underwent surgery in New York last month to remove cancerous cells on his ear and forehead.

But Hamilton is said to have encountered further health troubles as he recovered from the operation and was taken by ambulance to the Big Apple's Lenox Hill Hospital on 30 July to treat a popped suture.

"He was bleeding profusely... He spent four days in the hospital and was released," Contactmusic quoted a source as telling the publication.

However, the surgery is thought to have been a success and the 'Love at First Bite' star will not require further intensive treatment.

"Doctors say he will not need chemotherapy or radiation and should recover well, the insider added.

Hamilton has since returned to work, rehearsing for an upcoming U.S. tour of hit Broadway musical 'La Cage aux Folles'.

A spokesperson for Hamilton said, "It's true, George did have medical procedure to deal with some skin damage, but nowhere as serious or dramatic as Enquirer reports. They do tend to exaggerate."
