All My Children’s Cameron Mathison Reveals Cancer Diagnosis

Cameron Mathison

Daytime alumni Cameron Mathison (Ryan, ALL MY CHILDREN) has used social media to reach out to his fans to both inform and request support as he deals with his cancer diagnosis.

“I have a health situation that I want to share with you all,” he shared on Instagram. “There are many reasons I love social media, staying connected with you all, sharing fun experiences… well, this time I’m asking for your help.

“About a month ago, I had an MRI for some gut issues I’ve been having,” Mathison continued. “And during that MRI they found a tumor on my right kidney. It’s consistent with Renal Cell Carcinoma… or kidney cancer. The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs. They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctor’s think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.
