Oscar-winning actor Michael Douglas, who revealed in August that he had throat cancer, said yesterday that his tumor is gone and chances are good he has beaten cancer.
“I feel good, relieved,” Douglas said NBC’s “Today.”
“The tumor is gone. But, you know, I have to check out on a monthly basis now to maintain. I guess there’s not a total euphoria,” he said. “I’ll probably take a couple of months of getting checked out. But it’s been a wild six-month ride.”
Douglas, 66, made announced in August that doctors had diagnosed him with stage IV throat cancer, but he was optimistic he would recover.
In the months since, the “Wall Street” star has rarely made appearances, and grabbed headlines when he didn’t travel to Europe on the promotional tour for “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”
Douglas will next appear in Steven Soderbergh’s biopic “Liberace,” which will start shooting this summer.
