Treatment has reportedly put him “near remission,” People wrote on Wednesday.
“It’s kind of mind-boggling,” Trebek told the outlet. “The doctors said they hadn’t seen this kind of positive result in their memory … some of the tumors have already shrunk by more than 50 percent.”
When he received the good news from doctors, Trebek said he shed “tears of joy, not tears of depression.”
The TV personality has been open about the effects of cancer treatment. He told “Good Morning America” that he has cried in surges of “deep sadness” and described to “CBS This Morning” being “on the floor writhing in pain” on days that he was taping his show.
Trebek revealed his diagnosis in March. In April, “Jeopardy!” wrapped taping for the season, which has featured a record-breaking run by reigning champion James Holzhauer.
