Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan announced Monday that he is "100 percent cancer free" and in complete remission after receiving cancer treatment.

Hogan, a Republican, will continue to get scans on a regular basis and undergo preventive health maintenance, he said at the news conference.

He was diagnosed with B-cell non-Hodgkin lymphoma in June, five months into his first term as governor. He called it a "very aggressive" and "very advanced" form of cancer in his lymph nodes.

Hogan, who won an upset victory last November in the heavily Democratic state, said he had noticed a painless lump along his jaw before he was diagnosed. He also felt some back pain, which he said was caused by a tumor pressing on his spinal column.

Last month, he completed 30 days of chemotherapy. The treatment spanned four months. He told reporters he was "feeling pretty strong" about a week later. He has continued working during treatment.

He posted a video Sunday on his Facebook page, saying he will be an advocate to bring more attention to the disease. "Hopefully I'm going to be able to beat this disease and come out of it stronger than ever," he said in the video.
