Unfortunately, I've disclosed to one of my friends that my boss is suffering from an incurable disease. Can my boss sue me for this if he hears about this? Is this regarded as defamation of character?

These is no doubt that you have messed up! If you don't want to be sued in a local civil court, then reach the person and solve the issue personally.

It was more an act of slander than simple defamation. But the slandered person must also prove that malice was there in your words. If he can't, then it might be hard to punish you in a civil court.
