Dustin Hoffman is in “good health” following a battle with cancer, a representative for the 75-year-old told People magazine Tuesday.

“It was detected early and he has been surgically cured,” said the rep. “Dustin is feeling great and is in good health.”

The two-time Oscar-winning actor and director is scheduled to undergo doctor-recommended preventative treatment to avoid future instances of cancer.

Hoffman’s rep declined to give more details.
