The former All My Children star and father of two had been experiencing “gut issues,” which led him to pay a visit to his doctors. Testing revealed a cancerous tumor in his right kidney that’s consistent with renal cell carcinoma, the most common type of adult kidney cancer.

“Over the summer, some of [my health] concerns weren’t making a lot of sense to me, so I asked my doctor for a MRI in my gut area,” Mathison said in his announcement. “He didn’t think I needed it, but he obliged because I was persistent. When the results came back and he was right, I didn’t need [a MRI of] my gut, but, a miracle, they actually found a growth on one of my kidneys.”

In addition to gut issues, kidney cancer symptoms can include blood in the urine, lower back pain, constant fatigue, loss of appetite, and unexplained weight loss, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

His doctors say that his tumor has been growing for 10 to 15 years, but remains localized to the area. “The good news is that it hasn’t spread to any other organs????????,” Mathison wrote in an Instagram post about his health update. “They say my healthy lifestyle and diet has no doubt helped keep it from growing and spreading to other areas, as doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years????????. I am extremely lucky that we found it early.” According to the American Cancer Society, the average age of people who are diagnosed with kidney cancer is 64, and it’s very uncommon in those 45 or younger.

I have a health situation that I want to share with you all???????? 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, 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 doctors think it’s been growing in me for minimum 10 years????????. I am extremely lucky that we found it early. Thank you to my longtime friend and urologist @jon_giddens who has helped me tremendously through this process. Vanessa, Lucas and Leila have been absolutely amazing with their love and support... as have my mom, dad, brother, and everyone at Home and Family, Hallmark, and ET❤️ My surgery is scheduled on September 12th, I was hoping to receive positive thoughts, prayers, or whatever you feel comfortable with, on 9/12 (my surgery is at 1pm PST) ????????
