Giants general manager Dave Gettleman's cancer is reportedly in remission.

The New York Post reported Wednesday that Gettleman has recently told people his scans have come back clean.

Gettleman, 67, has lost his hair while undergo chemotherapy for lymphoma, a treatment he will continue for a while longer, the Post reported.

"Dave’s doing great," new Giants coach Pat Shurmur said Wednesday as his players reported for training camp. "He was here (Tuesday), and he's been doing his treatments. That’s a process that he’s going through, but we communicate frequently. We’ve been in close touch all summer."

Gettleman announced in early June that he is battling cancer, adding that his prognosis was positive.

The Giants hired Gettleman as general manager in December. He had spent 2013-16 as the Carolina Panthers' GM.

Before going to Carolina, Gettleman was a longtime executive with the Giants, including during their Super Bowl-winning seasons in 2007 and 2011.
