he says he's getting great treatment but seems very serious to me. anyone know how treatable this is?
1) it’s treatable.
2) treatment is often an out-patient procedure
3) more than 90% of people diagnosed live more than 5 years.

That being said, it’s cancer. If it has been detected early,he’s looking at a battery of tests and doctors. The real danger is if it’s spread elsewhere in the body

Wishing him well! I liked him in The Big Lebowski but I love the movie Seabiscuit and he's a big part of what made that movie so good.

If I recall correctly my uncle had lymphoma and live for around 7 years after diagnoses. I think he had other illnesses that led to his death. I wish Jeff the best. I adored him in The Big Lebowski and Crazy Heart.

ET or some similar show last night reported on his illness...mentioned that Oprah bought her mendicino home from him and his wife....I hadn't know (or hadn't remembered) that

hope they caught this disease early. I'm sure he will get the very best treatment
