Google’s CEO Larry Page could be seriously ill, international news sites reported on Monday, June 25, 2012.

Speculations on Page‘s health condition are spreading after he was forced to skip Google‘s annual stakeholder meeting over the weekend, with Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt saying that Page had “lost his voice” and “can’t do any public speaking engagements for the time being.”

According to Business Insider, Page could be having a thyroid problem, possibly thyroid cancer. Meanwhile Amir Efrati and Joann Lublin of the Wall Street Journal talked to a doctor and reportedly came back with three other possible illness of Page. This include acute laryngitis, muscle tension dysphonia and benign lesions that grow on the vocal chords.

Meanwhile, CNN reported that Page sent an email to Google employees saying “there is nothing seriously wrong with me.”

Some experts said that Google should divulge more about Page‘s voice problem. As the CEO of a public company, “he’s not entitled to his privacy,” Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, a senior associate dean at Yale School of Management reportedly said. “We need to know if it [his voice] is imperiled,” he added.

“There shouldn’t be any mystery (here). Google should own up to whatever it is… It could stop, maybe, any rumors from going around.” CNNMoney‘s assistant managing editor, Paul R. La Monica was quoted as saying in a CNN report.
