Hugo Chávez says he's clean, cancer's gone
Chávez' health claims are at odds with what one of the president's former personal physicians said in an interview earlier this week. That doctor, a Venezuelan surgeon not involved in the current cancer treatment, told a Mexican magazine that Chávez family members had confirmed to him that a pelvic sarcoma was discovered in June. The surgeon said that the prognosis was grim, and that Chávez' life expectancy would be perhaps two years.
Hugo Chávez given dire prognosis by physician: pelvic sarcoma, two years left.
