RadarOnline.com has learned Val Kilmer has suffered a devastating new setback in his life-and-death battle with throat cancer! Just weeks after the Top Gun tough guy looked healthy and on the road to recovery in encouraging photos, disturbing new images of the 58-year-old film star have emerged. Val was photographed on May 7 in Los Angeles looking frail, and his face was grotesquely blown out of proportion — not to mention the horrifying, gaping wound on his left forearm!

"He's showing the scars of skin surgery — most likely for the removal of a new cancer," New York internist Dr. Stuart Fischer, who has not treated the Batman star, told Radar.

"Combined with the original tumor he suffered in his throat, this is far from a good sign."

Other physicians also believe this is a dire sign his cancer problems are no longer confined — including Dr. Gabe Mirkin, who also has not treated the star, and said "it is most likely a shave biopsy" taken to "check for a hidden cancer or malignant mole!"

The flesh-eating cancer is normally treatable, but given Val's preexisting throat tumor, it could be a sign of disaster.

"If the cancer has spread beyond the neck, into the lymph nodes and other parts of the body, it's rarely, if ever curable," said Dr. Jerome Spunberg, who has also never treated the actor.

The fact that Val, a devout follower of Christian Science, has used prayer instead of modern meds to treat his disease is also distressing.

"Delaying treatment for religious or any other reason is an extremely dangerous mistake," said worried Dr. Fischer.

As Radar previously reported, Kilmer was reluctant to come clean about his health, until his ailment became evident, and his voice began to fail.
