Douglas appeared on "Today" this morning and explained that he'll have to get checked out "on a monthly basis now to maintain."

But the good news didn't stop there -- Michael noted that he's already gained back 12 of the 32 pounds he lost during the frightening ordeal ... and is "eating like a pig."

I hope he beat it. Cancer is sneaking, hopefully it doesn't come back. I remember reading Farrah Fawcett saying she beat cancer and a few months later it was back.

I hope the he does beat this horrible disease. My mom had the same cancer, her tumor was gone, but returned within 6 months. Kinda hard to believe that he's completely cancer free knowing he had stage 4 throat cancer....time will tell.

The "Tumor" may appear to be gone but the "Cancer" is not.

He is in remission and will be until the cancer appears or not in the next 5 years. Once you have cancer the chances of it reappearing is high unless taken out with surgery.

Yeah that's what having money and health insurance will do for you, in these days most of us don't have employment or access to health care other then the most basic and we just have to die from diseases like that.
