Michael Douglas says tumour is gone

Oscar winning actor Michael Douglas, who revealed in August that he had throat cancer, said yesterday that his tumour was gone and chances were good he had beaten cancer.

In an interview with US morning talk show 'Today', Douglas said: "I'll probably take a couple of months of getting checked out. But it's been a wild six-month ride."

"I think the odds are, with the tumor gone and what I know about this particular type of cancer, that I've got it beat."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Pisces:

Keep precious possessions safe. Don't leave valuables in a parked car; instead, stow them in the boot. Lock your doors. Create passwords that are hard to crack. Simple measures like these will save you a world of trouble. The last thing you want is to waste time filing police reports. If you do become the victim of theft, stay calm. Ask the authorities what you can do to protect yourself from future crimes. Smart decisions are your best defence.More
