‘Mob Wives' Big Ang -- Fingers Crossed ... I'm One Step from Being Cancer-Free

EXCLUSIVE

Big Ang hit the Big Apple Wednesday night … a month and some change since having a nasty cancerous tumor removed from her throat.

Despite the intense surgery ... it's hard to see any scar, so it looks like the docs did good by the ‘Mob Wives’ star.

Ang gave our camera guy the low down on her road to cancer-freedom. It also looks like she's trying a new diet -- Ang posted a pic of herself hanging at Wild, a gluten-free Italian joint.

Big Ang ain't afraid of change.
