Cameron Mathison fights kidney cancer.

The personality of the Hallmark Channel, 50, made the revelation on his Instagram page in a post-Tuesday in which he opened about the diagnosis and surgery he has planned this week.

& # 39; I had an MRI for some bowel problems about a month ago, and during that MRI they found a tumor in my right kidney & # 39 ;, wrote the resident of Sarnia, Canada. & # 39; It is consistent with renal cell carcinoma … or renal cancer. & # 39;

Mathison said the cancer did not spread to other organs, as doctors told him that his & # 39; healthy lifestyle and diet undoubtedly helped prevent it from growing and spreading & # 39; in at least 10 years it has been in his body.

& # 39; I'm very lucky to have found it early & # 39 ;, said Mathison, who since 2002 has been married to wife Vanessa Arevalo and father of children Lucas, 16, and Leila, 13, with her. He said that his wife and children have been absolutely wonderful with their love and support, as well as his parents and brother.

He thanked his old friend and urologist Jonathan Giddens for helping enormously through this process, as well as his professional contacts at Home and Family, Hallmark and ET.

Mathison said his operation is scheduled for Thursday at 1 p.m. PT, adding that he & # 39; hoped for positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever made you feel comfortable. & # 39;

& # 39; I announced this yesterday on @homeandfamilytv and wanted to make sure I posted it here & # 39 ;, said Mathison. Feel very grateful and optimistic !! & # 39;

In the cable network segment, Mathison opened the details of the laparoscopic surgery he was about to undergo.

& # 39; They are going in and they are going to cut this out, hopefully they will leave most of my kidney intact, & # 39; Mathison said, adding that the procedure & # 39; minimally invasive & # 39; and that he does not have to undergo chemotherapy or radiation as part of his recovery.

& # 39; I'm going in, having this removed, and I was thinking maybe coming back that day or the next day – back to work immediately! & # 39; Mathison joked, who also has a background as an actor, who appeared in the soap All My Children between 1998 and 2011.
