“A little thing bubbled up and they thought it was time to do a biopsy on it, and the biopsy came out positive,’’ said Remy during a sit-down with studio host Tom Caron. “So I was diagnosed again with cancer.”
Remy, 61, first had surgery in November 2008 to remove a cancerous area from a lung.
He said this cancer is in a different spot in his lung. It was discovered during his six-month CAT scan in January.
Remy traveled back to Boston from spring training in Fort Myers in March to receive radiation treatment at Mass General Hospital. He returned to work within days.
“And right now I’m fine,’’ he said.
