That's what a lot of fans of the show thought when headlines announced that Angela "Big Ang" Raiola was spotted back at the hospital on Tuesday.

Luckily, Raiola confirmed that her visit was routine, and that her cancer is still in remission.

"I just go for blood work," she told Radar Online. "Everything is fine."

Raiola continued, "Every three months, I go for a CAT scan and blood work — for the next five years."

Raiola was diagnosed with throat cancer back in April. Several month later, in December, it was reported that her cancer had returned and spread. Now, however, she insists that she's in remission and moving forward with her treatments.

"Oh, it's going. It's OK," she told Radar Online about her ongoing treatment to keep her cancer in check. "I'm good. I'm over it. Back to normal."
