The 74-year-old “Fox NFL Sunday” host said he’s gotten two cancer diagnoses in the past year.

He was first diagnosed with Bladder cancer in November and a rare form of skin cancer in March.

“I want to the Yale University medical center, surgery, treatment, as of today, I am bladder cancer free,” said Bradshaw.

He said doctors then found a tumor on the left side of his neck. He was able to get treatment for that and is cancer free from those treatments, but has been left a little weak as he recovers from treatments.

He says it will take a little time, but he will be back to feeling 100 percent again soon.

Bradshaw's fellow hosts on "Fox NFL Sunday" applauded Bradshaw and his recovery.

“You’re going to give a lot of hope to a lot of people who are out there who are going through something similar,” said Michael Strahan who just had to get a shot in at Bradshaw. “But I also, am just curious as why it took this for people to ask ‘what’s wrong’ with you after all these years?”

Of course, that made Bradshaw laugh.
