The reported earlier today that LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

That is indeed true, but there’s more to the story. Cameron was diagnosed with prostate cancer and has been successfully treated.

“I’m fine. My health is good,” Cameron told in an impromptu news conference on Friday. “I’ve been given a clean bill of health.”

Cameron said the treatment lasted four weeks and did not involve radiation, according to’s Ross Dellenger and Scott Rabalais. The offensive coordinator had a procedure and got the news that he was cancer-free about two weeks ago.

Cameron will continue as the Tigers’ play-caller during the 2015 season, and will return to the field in full capacity early next week.

“There are very few limitations, and I should be completely 100 percent by Monday,” Cameron said to reporters. “We’re good. We’re ready to roll. All of our goals are intact: win the SEC and heading toward a national championship.”

LSU opens up their season against McNeese State next Saturday and will thankfully have a healthy Cameron with them.
