Teddi Mellencamp is feeling good.

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum posted an exciting update on her cancer journey alongside a screenshot from her oncologist to her Instagram Stories.

"Final report is all good," the note from her oncologist read. "Some atypical areas, but no melanoma. We'll have to keep a close watch on you, but all good now. I'll want to see you in about 3 months. Sooner if you have any concerns."

The Two Ts in A Pod co-host was obviously thrilling, adding, "Great news from my oncologist," tagging the Melanoma Research Foundation.

Mellencamp first shared her stage 2 melanoma diagnosis in October 2022, urging her fans to get checked.

"This has been such a wakeup call for me," she wrote on Instagram at the time. "And I hope to all of you, to love and protect the skin you're in."

Since then, the reality star has kept fans up-to-date on her cancer journey, sharing that a previous immunotherapy treatment was unsuccessful, leading to a surgery just before Christmas.

"Basically they cut out the area of my shoulder and replaced it with a flap of skin from below on my back," she said on Instagram on Dec. 27. "But the pain and discomfort are all worth it."

Noting the operation went well, she expressed her gratitude to her fans, adding, "The outpouring of love and prayers in the comments and DMs has left me speechless (which is tough)."

Throughout her journey, the 42-year-old has also shared how her diagnosis has changed the way she interacts with her children, Slate, 11, Cruz, 9, Dove, 3, and stepdaughter Isabella, 15.

"Most of my life, I've always put on a brave face and tried to hide my emotions," she told E! News in May of 2023. "But the more I share and open up to them, the more they share with me. They've taught me that. And it makes you build that level of mom trusts us to share her good and bad days, we want to do the same."
