Famous "All My Children" star, Cameron Mathison, has excitedly shared a new update that he is now "cancer-free" following weeks of extensive surgery.

Mathison and his wife of 17 years, Vanessa attended the American Humane Hero Dog Awards in Beverly Hills last weekend. 

It was there he happily shared positive reports about his health. Mathison revealed that even he had not expected that he'd be at the special occasion but that he feels well enough to. Mathison told Extra while his wife smiled, looking on:

"I'm feeling really, really well. It's three weeks out of surgery, and I honestly didn't even think that I would be feeling up for coming here tonight to be part of this event." 

The father of two continued with the good news as he explained that the recovery process has been going fine and that the surgery went well, thus, resulting in a very optimistic prognosis for him. 

He further gave intricate details about the surgery and explained that doctors excised the tumor on his right kidney and in doing so, removed a significant part of the organ. 

He then labeled himself cancer-free and disclosed that a pathology report, recently obtained by the doctors, shows that the cancer is gone, and there are no signs that it has metastasized to other organs. He said,

"It has not spread to lymph nodes, lungs, any other organs, so I'm cancer-free."

Mathison, who co-hosts Hallmark Channel's "Home and Family," went on to share that he owes the improvement in his health to being proactive. 

The 50-year-old disclosed that thanks to being "in tune" with his body, he was able to determine that something serious "was up."

That caused him to advise listeners always to be proactive because "you're your best advocate for your own health and wellness."
