The Hollywood star recently underwent surgery to remove a lump from her breast after her physician discovered a small "non-invasive" tumour during a routine check-up earlier this year (10).

The 72-year-old Oscar-winner is now cancer-free and admits she feels blessed to have been able to treat the disease before it became more serious.

In a post on her official website, she writes, "As the press has reported... I had a scare with a non-invasive breast cancer but it is ALL OUT NOW! I am so lucky. We got it early and it was, as I said, non-invasive. I want to thanks my friends and fans who have written beautiful letters. It has meant a lot to me."
