Bolivian Leader Morales Confirms Successful Surgery on Tumor

LA PAZ – Bolivia’s President Evo Morales said on Wednesday he had successfully undergone surgery to remove a small tumor that was found during his regular medical examinations on Tuesday.

Morales, who was admitted to a private clinic in La Paz on Tuesday afternoon, confirmed the result of the surgery on his Twitter account, although he did not specify where the tumor was located.

“In the routine check-up, a small tumor was detected and it has already been satisfactorily removed in an emergency surgery without risk. Tomorrow I am discharged. I am very well, 100 points!” read Morales’ message, posted with a photograph of him being treated by medical personnel in the clinic.

He was also thankful for the “sympathy” and “prayers and blessings” he had received.

Bolivian authorities reported on Tuesday that Morales was admitted to a clinic to undergo “routine medical tests as previously scheduled.”

Bolivia’s vice-president Alvaro Garcia Linera told the media on Wednesday morning that the cabinet asks Morales to take these routine medical examinations “because he is a man who pushes himself hard, works hard” and he needs to have “to control over his health.”

In April 2017, the Bolivian president underwent surgery at a hospital in Havana to remove a benign tumor from his larynx.
