Is my microwave leaking radiation? Is it worth worrying about?

When we bought our home, our home inspector had a Device which he said showed that our microwave was leaking. It was a simple, pen-like thing with a light on the end of it and I think it made a ringing tone. My memory is that it looked a lot like the Thing you use to determine if an outlet is hot.
Anyway, he held up the Device around the outside edges of the microwave, and in one corner it lit up. And this test, apparently, showed that the microwave was leaking radiation.
What was the Device? And should we be concerned about using the microwave? Do we need to keep our distance?
