Dustin Hoffman has been “surgically cured” of cancer, a spokesman for the actor said.

“It was detected early and he has been surgically cured,” Hoffman’s publicist told People magazine, which was the first to report the story.

She added that the Academy Award winner is “feeling great” and is “in good health.”

Hoffman, 75, reportedly will have treatment to prevent a recurrence of the cancer, the type of which was not identified.

Hoffman won the Oscar for Best Actor in 1979 for “Kramer vs. Kramer” and in 1988 for “Rain Man.” He directed the 2012 film “Quartet” and recently wrapped up production on the comedy “Chef,” which also stars Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr.
