Argentine President Kristina Fernandez de Kirchner was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and will undergo surgery. Just two months after being re-elected, cancer was found “on the right lobe of the thyroid gland” after a routine exam given to her on December 22nd.
The cancer was caught early enough and the doctors believe that she may be able to recover fully.
According to Dr. Marco Bruno from the Argentina Cancer Association:
“The prospects (for recovery) are excellent, and no one should expect any further development of the tumour after the operation.”
That is great news! That would probably mean that the cancer has not metastasize or spread beyond the affected area.
We will the president well and hoping for a full recovery! Mrs. Kirchner is 58-years old.
