NEW YORK (AP) — Michael Douglas says his tumor is gone and that he may have beaten throat cancer.

In a taped interview with NBC’s Matt Lauer, Douglas said he felt relieved after a “wild, six-month ride.” Excerpts of the interview were released Monday ahead of its airing Tuesday on “Today.”

Douglas says the odds are that he has beaten the disease.

He said that he had lost 32 pounds, but was now working out and had put 12 pounds back on. He said he’ll continue to go in for monthly checkups.

The 66-year-old actor is set to begin shooting Steven Soderbergh’s “Liberace” in May or June, with Douglas playing the title part. He’s also nominated for a Golden Globe for his performance in “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.”
