“It was terrifying,” Sheen, 49, told The ENQUIRER’s Editor-In-Chief Dylan Howard of the moment he was diagnosed with a pre-cancerous throat condition.

A longtime smoker, Sheen sought out a world-renowned throat and vocal cord specialist, only to be told he was facing a “very aggressive procedure” that could cause irreparable damage to his dental work, and worse — his voice.

Still, Sheen revealed, "I never gave up hope that I would beat this challenge."
