Michael Douglas celebrating cancer update

6/13/2014

Michael Douglas is celebrating after doctors told him the chance of his tongue cancer returning is just five per cent. The Wall Street star was diagnosed with the illness in 2010 and he underwent six months of treatment before being informed he was in remission in 2011. Douglas has undergone regular checks ever since, and just days ago he was told the happy news that his final examination shows he is still free of the disease and has a 95 per cent chance it will never return. The delighted actor gave an interview to fellow Hollywood star Samuel L. Jackson for U.K. TV show This Morning, which was broadcast on Thursday (10Oct13), and said, "(The check-ups) start out every three months and then after that you get to six months, and just before I got here I had my last check-up because I passed two years, and I'm clean. And with my type of cancer, if you're clean after two years, there's a 95 per cent chance it's not coming back."
