Dustin Hoffman successfully fought and won his battle with cancer. An undisclosed form of the disease was found in Hoffman's body, and his representative shares that, since it was "detected early," it has been removed completely.

"It was detected early and he has been surgically cured," the rep says in a statement to People. "Dustin is feeling great and is in good health."

The 75-year-old will continue to undergo "preventative treatment" so that the cancer doesn't recur in the future, though there is always a small chance it could. Hoffman's rep declined to specify the type of cancer Hoffman was treated for.
