(CARACAS, Venezuela) -- In a speech that aired on state television Thursday, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez revealed that he underwent two surgeries, including one to remove a cancerous tumor, during his time in Cuba.
Chavez traveled to Cuba in early June to remove a pelvic abscess, at which time doctors detected the malignant cells, prompting a second operation. The 56-year-old did not specify where the tumor was found nor what type of cancer was detected.
It is not yet known when Chavez will leave Cuba, where he remains receiving treatment.
