Chavez to Employ More CastroCare


Old Hugo is one huge cancerous growth...

Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez said Tuesday he will undergo surgery in the coming days to remove a "lesion" in the same area where a cancerous tumor was extracted in mid-2011.

Chavez, who faces a serious challenge as he runs for re-election this year, said the lesion was found during a medical checkup over the weekend in Cuba.

"It is a small lesion of nearly two centimeters in diameter, very clearly visible. That requires that that lesion be extracted and a new surgical intervention," he said on state-run VTV television.

The Venezuelan leader has said he was declared cancer-free after the surgery and four rounds of chemotherapy, but details of his condition have been kept secret.
