Cameron announced he received a clean bill of health during a press conference Friday. Cameron said he received the positive news about two weeks ago, and that came about four weeks after the initial diagnosis.
Cameron reiterated several times during his press conference that he is 100 percent cancer free.
"That’s the story," Cameron said. "I’ve been given a clean bill of health. We are on toward the season...I enjoy every day we’re here, and I hope we all understand that as well."
Cameron said the doctors gave him an optimistic prognosis from the beginning. He underwent a procedure that did not require any radiation. Cameron notified the team early in the process and had full support of the athletic department.
"I've never experienced anything quite like it," Cameron said. "It’s been awesome for me and my family. This thing has progressed in such a positive way."
Cameron said he did not miss any time with the team during treatment. Doctors placed some limitations on him, but those did not effect his responsibilities. Cameron said on Monday he'll be completely free of the restrictions.
This was the second time Cameron has survived cancer. He battled skin cancer early in his coaching career while at Michigan, and credited Bo Schembechler for encouraging him to get checked.
Another member of the LSU coaching staff has survived prostate cancer as well. Strength and conditioning coach Tommy Moffitt overcame the disease.
Four years ago, another LSU offensive coordinator was diagnosed with a serious illness entering the season. Steve Kragthorpe stepped down into an administrative role he still carries after revealing he had Parkinson's disease. LSU promoted offensive line coach Greg Studrawa to his position.
But Cameron's cancer scare did not require any shakeup. He will continue all duties that come with being LSU's offensive coordinator.
“He’s been involved in everything we’ve done," said LSU coach Les Miles. "It’s great news. There are no issues in anyway. He’s ready to go.”
