Hugo Chavez Health : Venezuela and ‘The West’ on different terms
The precise nature of Hugo Chávez’s cancer has not been divulged as Venezuelan state officials have never specified the kind of Hugo Chavez has, but they have denied the cancer has spread to other organs, while western media probes the Chavez news on aconstant basis with acclaims that the Venezuelan leader has a more serious type of cancer than actually shown.
Dr Sebastian Quintero, an oncologist in neighbouring Colombia, stated the Chavez announcement from Elian Jaua did not add anything to what little is publicly known about Chávez’s health and cancer. ‘They have not said anything different from what was already known: that Chavez has a tumour in the area of the pelvis,’ Quintero pointed out. ‘The pelvis is a large cavity with several organs inside, including the prostate, part of the bladder, part of the colon, so it’s difficult to determine in what part the cancerous tumour is based. We’re left the same as before.’
Hugo Chávez, 57, declared last week that doctors in Cuba had found a new growth about one inch (2.5cm) in diameter in the same area where a baseball-sized cancerous tumour was removed last summer.
