Jeff Bridges says tumor has 'drastically shrunk' after lymphoma diagnosis

Jeff Bridges has announced some great news amid his battle with lymphoma.

The Big Lebowski actor shared a promising health update on his website after revealing his lymphoma diagnosis in October.

"I go in for a CAT scan to see if my new protocol is shrinking the tumor," Bridges wrote, per Page Six. "Turns out it's working beautifully. The thing has drastically shrunk."

Bridges went on to write that he came home "elated," though he also described subsequently turning on the TV and seeing the news on the day of the Capitol riot in Washington, D.C. The actor said that "to see our country attacking itself broke my heart."

When he shared his diagnosis last year, Bridges wrote that he feels "fortunate that I have a great team of doctors and the prognosis is good." He later updated fans in December, writing alongside a photo of himself with a shaved head that he's "feeling good."
