Michael Douglas Today Show Interview ‘The Tumor Is Gone’

 Michael Douglas on the Today Show

In an interview set to air on the Today show Tuesday, January 11, Michael Douglas, 66, reveals to Matt Lauer that he has beaten his cancer!

“I feel good, relieved. 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. I’ll probably take a couple of months of getting checked out. But it’s been a wild six-month ride.”

He added that as he recovers his appetite is back and he’s slowly gaining the weight he lost during his illness:

“I lost about 32 lbs.,” he says. “And I’ve put about 12 back. But, I mean, I got another 20, 25 to go.”

Dateline NBC will also air an interview with Douglas on January 23.

Great news!
