DWTS head judge Len GoodmanDancing With The Stars head judge Len Goodman has revealed to the London Daily Mail that he recently underwent surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from his prostate gland.

Len's prognosis is good, and he's recovering well enough to fully expect to appear on Season 9 of DWTS this fall as well as the British version of the show, Strictly Come Dancing.

Len told The Mail that he received the diagnosis during an annual checkup in March, but he and his doctors felt they had caught the tumor early enough that he could finish filming Season 8 of DWTS before returning to the U.K. for the surgery.

Len admitted that he was, understandably, anxious at first, but told The Mail that more recently, he's been more upset about not being able to play golf while recuperating.

All the best to Len, his recovery and his golf game as Season 9 approaches!
