Philippine Leader Says He May Have Cancer

Manila, Philippines – Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Thursday that he might have cancer and added that “I don’t know where I’m now physically” as he awaited results of recent medical tests.

Duterte said in a speech in Manila that he underwent an endoscopy and colonoscopy about three weeks ago but his doctor was advised this week to repeat the tests. Both tests aim to diagnose any abnormality in the digestive tract and colon.

“I don’t know where I’m now physically, but I have to wait for that. But I would tell you if it’s cancer, it’s cancer,” Duterte, 73, said to a Philippine Military Academy alumni group and top security officials.
