LONDON: Ousted prime minister’s wife, Kulsoom Nawaz was reported to have reappeared tumour nodes by doctors on Tuesday.
The premier’s wife was reported to be undergoing chemotherapy in London on January 8 after being diagnosed with lymphoma — a cancer of the lymph nodes on August 22, 2017, and has gone through six chemotherapy sessions and three surgeries during the last seven months.
The tests showed the re-emergence of a tumour following a series of scans last week. The course of further treatment, the necessity for surgery or radiotherapy treatment will be decided on by a team of highly qualified British doctors.
Earlier, Kulsoom had left for a medical checkup in London on the same day of her nomination papers being accepted for the NA-120 constituency.
Though Kulsoom has not returned to the country ever since, her daughter Maryam Nawaz has been able to front head her mother’s by-election campaign, leading it to victory.
The NA-120 seat had fallen vacant after the Supreme Court (SC) on July 28, 2017, disqualified Nawaz in the Panama Papers case over charges of concealing his salary from his son’s Dubai-based company.
