US film star Val Kilmer has confirmed he is in hospital awaiting medical results but said he does not have a tumour and has not had surgery.

In a message on his Facebook page, the 55-year-old said he was in UCLA Medical Centre's intensive care for a "complication".

"We are waiting for x ray results and will stay close to my doctors advising, my family and Christian Science practitioner when all the facts are in," he said. "Then I'll do what's best and be back at it sooner than u can shake a gossip column at an out of work actor."

Earlier his publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said the tests were for a possible tumour and that his two adult children were caring for him at the hospital.

Kilmer thanked fans for their support and told them not to worry.

Kilmer is known for roles in movies including Top Gun, Heat and Tombstone.
