"Mad Men" star Jon Hamm, who continued to be denied an Emmy Award on Sunday after nine nominations, will have throat surgery next week for a polyp on his vocal cord, reports.

Hamm will have a routine outpatient procedure, and is expected to make a full, quick recovery, the site said. It added that tabloid reports saying that Hamm had been spitting up blood and faced a serious health crisis were incorrect.

"Mad Men" is expected to begin production on its seventh and final season shortly, said Monday.

Hamm had been nominated for his ninth Emmy Award for acting -- six times as outstanding lead actor in a drama series, for "Mad Men," and three times as outstanding guest actor in a comedy series for "30 Rock" -- twice for playing Dr. Drew Baird and once for a dual role as newscaster David Brinkley and the character Abner from the "Amos 'n' Andy" parody show-within-a-show, "Alfie and Abner."
