entertainment Updated: May 30, 2009 16:22 IST

King of Pop Michael Jackson who is infected with skin cancer is living in constant fear of death, the Sun online reported.

The 'Thriller' singer has been photographed visiting top doctors in Los Angeles after cancerous skin cells were found on his nose, chest and arm.

"The doctors have reassured him that this won't happen. But Michael believes that the skin cancer will kill him and lives in constant fear of dying. His chances are excellent but he is very afraid," a source told the newspaper.

The 50-year-old star had to cancel the first four of his 50 gigs at London's O2 this summer amid health concerns.

The star is also terrified that the disease will result in his nose falling off.

"Michael has become convinced that his nose is going to fall off. He is in a fragile state at the moment and the skin cancer diagnosis has terrified him," the source said.

"He has been told he has a very good chance of recovering and that his cancer is very treatable. But he is still very stressed and worried," the source added.

The report further claimed that Jackson has undergone shave biopsies on his chest, arm and nose to remove potentially lethal growths since the cancer was diagnosed last month.
