Don Imus, who made national news two years ago after he called the Rutgers women's basketball team "nappy-headed hos," has revealed that he has Stage II prostate cancer.  Imus made the announcement today on his radio show. 

Said the 68-year-old controversial radio host: "I have great confidence in my doctors. I'll be fine. If I'm not fine, then I won't be fine. And it's not a big deal.  The prognosis couldn't be better."

Stage II prostate cancer, according to the National Cancer Institute, means the cancer has not spread outside of the prostate yet. 

Imus was hired by ABC in 2007 after CBS fired him for the controversial Rutgers remarks.
