The actor revealed he was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, which is considered a common cancer. It is the same cancer affecting Louisiana Congressman Steve Scalise.

He had weird symptoms that made him go get checked out. In fact, fans pointed out that his eye was acting wonky. On top of that, the wedding ring he wore as Michael Baldwin was slipping easily off his finger. Plus, he was having nosebleeds.

When he adhered to fan warnings he went to his eye doctor who sent him to a specialist. They found a tumor in his sinus cavity that was pushing on his optic nerve.

He lost 35 pounds in only two months. So, he underwent surgery to remove the tumor, was admitted to the hospital and had immunotherapy.

Now, he can proudly say he is in remission. He beat the cancer.

Will he be back on the show?

After going through his cancer battle and losing so much weight, many fans wonder if he will be back on the set of The Young and the Restless. The answer is absolutely.
