The star, who provided the update to People, stated that seven months after he underwent the surgery, he has his "strength back."

Cameron observed that while his healthy lifestyle and diet prevented the tumor from growing and spreading to other areas, he felt lucky that the cancer was detected early.

While he admitted that he didn't want to get too comfortable saying it, the "Murder, She Baked" actor felt it was okay for him to admit that he is now cancer-free.

Cameron's interview with the media outlet came some months after Today reported that during the American Humane Hero Dog Awards in 2019 he said:

"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."

Cameron, who has been on the Hallmark Channel as a "Home & Family" co-host since added that:

"the surgery went really well, the prognosis is very optimistic."

Soon after the surgery, the actor showed off the scars he got from the procedure in an Instagram post, according to a Today report.

Through the post, he explained that he spent half of his life focused on the way his body looked and the half of his career being shirtless. While he had his abs to show off before, Cameron was more than pleased to "bear the scars that made me cancer-free."

It would be recalled that CNN Entertainment disclosed that the 50-year-old actor was battling with cancer after he shared the news via his Instagram.

Cameron started the post by claiming that he had a health situation that he wanted to share with his fans and followers.
