'Everything Fine' Confirms Venezuelan President Chavez, Post Tests on Cancer
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez told all were well with him after undertaking tests following his cancer treatment. Chavez said the tests included imaging tests, which are used to check for the reappearance of tumors.
"Everything came out absolutely fine. I feel very well," Fox News quoted Chavez as saying.
Chavez returned from Cuba on May 11 after his latest round of radiation therapy, and since then has limited his public appearances.
In the past, Chavez has undergone two surgeries that removed tumors from his pelvic region.
During his yearlong cancer struggle, Chavez has never disclosed any details about his illness, including the type of cancer or the precise location of the tumors.
Chavez was asked about recent remarks by World Bank President Robert Zoellick, who in a speech said he believed that 'Chavez's days are numbered".
"To foolish words, deaf ears. I think the one that has its days numbered is global capitalism, of which the World Bank is a part," Chavez said.
Chavez also accused his rival, opposition leader Henrique Capriles, of representing the interests of the wealthy.
"We're going to win this battle on October 7. The bourgeoisie will never again return to this building," Chavez said.
