BOSTON, April 11 (UPI) -- Jerry Remy, Boston Red Sox broadcaster and former second baseman, revealed in an interview his recent treatment for a relapse of lung cancer.

Remy, 61 and a longtime smoker, had surgery in 2008 to remove a cancerous area from his lung, The Boston Globe reported Thursday.

In an interview Wednesday on NESN with studio host Tom Caron, Remy said, "A little thing bubbled up and they thought it was time to do a biopsy on it, and the biopsy came out positive. So I was diagnosed again with cancer," adding the biopsy was a different part of the lung from the surgery.

"Right now I'm fine. Last time I had cancer and depression. This time I've been diagnosed with cancer but it's under control," Remy said in the interview.
