LOS ANGELES—Actress Jane Fonda on Friday said she had been diagnosed with a “very treatable” form of lymphoma and started a six-month regimen of chemotherapy.

The 84-year-old disclosed her diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in an Instagram post.

“This is a very treatable cancer. 80 percent of people survive, so I feel very lucky,” Fonda wrote.

“I realize, and it’s painful, that I am privileged in this,” she added.

“I’m doing chemo for 6 months and am handling the treatments quite well,” Fonda said on Instagram.

Fonda has worked in film and television for more than six decades.
