ATLANTA — Former President Jimmy Carter says no cancer was detected the last time he underwent a scan.

Carter released the following statement Sunday:

“My most recent MRI brain scan did not reveal any signs of the original cancer spots nor any new ones. I will continue to receive regular 3-week immunotherapy treatments of pembrolizumab.”

He apparently first shared the good news before giving a Sunday School lesson at Maranatha Baptist Church in his hometown of Plains, Georgia. Jill Stuckey, a church leader who was present, said Carter had announced that a brain scan this week showed no cancer.

Carter, 91, announced in August that he had been diagnosed with melanoma that spread to his brain.
