A gaunt-looking Apple CEO Steve Jobs is said to have been photographed leaving the same cancer clinic where late actor Patrick Swayze went for chemotherapy.

Jobs, 55, who in January went on his third leave of absence from Apple in seven years, is suffering from pancreatic cancer and attending the Stanford Cancer Center in Palo Alto, Calif., for treatment.

His cancer battle started in 2004 and he reportedly went to Switzerland in 2009 to undergo a rare radiology treatment.

The Wall Street Journal reported Jobs also had a secret liver transplant in Memphis, Tenn.

The supermarket tabloid National Enquirer claims to be publishing photos of Jobs taken Feb. 8 that show the Apple founder looking incredibly thin and frail.

The Enquirer is reported to have interviewed critical-care physician Dr. Samuel Jacobson who viewed the photos and said the 6-foot-2 Jobs appeared "close to terminal."

"I would say he has six weeks," Jacobson said.
