Young and the Restless spoilers hint Victor Newman (Eric Braeden Gudegast) may be terminally ill and that’s why he’s pulling Adam Newman (Mark Grossman) closer with all his might. A recent visit from Dr Nate Hastings (Sean Dominic) this week teased some very bad news. Someone in the Newman family is very sick. Nate disappointed Victor saying treatment options are limited. Could it be Victor that’s facing a medical crisis? Here’s what is ahead on the CBS sudser.
Young and the Restless: Victor Newman Faces Dire Diagnosis?
Although Nate Hastings has been the physician to many people, this time it might be Victor Newman that’s his patient. Y&R spoilers know if it was Nikki Newman (Melody Thomas Scott) that was sick, she’d probably be part of the conversation. Plus, Nikki being sick wouldn’t have Victor clawing so desperately to keep Adam Newman around. The health of The Mustache hits red flags all around.
While the actor is perfectly healthy, the new writers might have given him a health crisis to pull him into the center of a storyline. He recently spoke out about how much he loves the new writing regime and how Mal Young (although he didn’t speak his name) had pushed Victor Newman off-screen. A medical crisis would certainly put Victor Newman at the center of attention on Young and the Restless.
Nate: "Is now a good time?"
Victor: "Yeah, come in, especially if you have a diagnosis."
Nate: "I do, but it's not good news. That doesn't mean we can't fight this, we can."
Victor: "…and we will. I want to know what all the options are, no matter how experimental, okay?"#YR pic.twitter.com/UB9GQS1e7J

Y&R Spoilers: What Could Be Ailing Victor and Can Adam Newman Help?
The most recent health issue that Victor Newman suffered on Young and the Restless was a violent attack. JT Hellstrom (Thad Luckinbill) fought with him brutally and he took a tumble down the stairs. That’s no easy thing, even for a spring chicken. That fall triggered a head injury and a low-level stroke. So, Victor might be suffering the after-effects of that incident or it could be something else.
Remember, this is a man that has a heart transplant. Plus, he’s been stabbed, fell off a horse and suffered amnesia, and attacked with a spear gun. And he’s been shot more than once as well as poisoned. So, Y&R spoilers for a Victor Newman health crisis are not improbable. Maybe Victor needs Adam Newman for a kidney transplant on Young and the Restless. Or maybe he just loves his son and wants him around for his dying days (assuming it’s terminal).
Victor and Nikki Newman Unite With Dramatic Summer Storyline
The summer spoilers for Young and the Restless promise angry family from Adam Newman’s return and antics. But they also reveal that Nikki and Victor Newman grow closer as a couple as they deal with a crisis. Clearly, that’s about something beyond what is going on with Adam. After all, Nikki’s two kids are already aligned against Adam, so his return isn’t a unifying event.
But Y&R spoilers say one thing that might get Adam and his siblings to set their differences aside is if their father is dying. Other recent spoilers say that Victor Newman is keeping a huge secret. No doubt, it’s about his health. So, if he is terminal, you can bet Victor will go all-out to pull the family together if he thinks he won’t be around for much longer.
