Michael Douglas reports he is healthy

Great news for Michael Douglas, who has finally spoken out after months of treatment for a stage four cancerous tumor in his throat.  The actor has reported on the Today show that the treatment was successful and the tumor is completely gone.

Douglas says that he will have to go back once a month for a check-up, possibly for the rest of his life, and that there have been some side effects from radiation therapy, but mostly the prognosis is good.  He says his appetite is better than ever and he’s already gained 12 pounds, which is great news for his family and his fans alike.  Even better: he says he’s ready to go back to work!
