Oscar-winning actor Jeff Bridges revealed on Twitter Monday night that he’d been diagnosed with lymphoma.

The 70-year-old actor said his doctors say his “prognosis is good” and he will start treatment.

“As the Dude would say.. New S**T has come to light,” Bridges tweeted. “I have been diagnosed with lymphoma. Although it is a serious disease, I feel fortunate that I have a great team of doctors, and the prognosis is good. I’m starting treatment and will keep you posted on my recovery.”

According to the Mayo Clinic, “lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which is part of the body’s germ-fighting network.”

Before signing off, Bridges thanked everyone for their love and support and reminded them to vote.

“I’m profoundly grateful for the love and support from my family and friends,” Bridges added. “Thank you for your prayers, and well wishes. And, while I have you, please remember to go vote. Because we are all in this together. Love, Jeff.”
