'If It's Cancer, It's Cancer.' Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte Says He's Awaiting Test Results
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte said Thursday he might have cancer and added that “I don’t know where I’m now physically” as he awaited the result 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,” the 73-year-old Duterte said to a Philippine Military Academy alumni group and top security officials.
Duterte added that “if it’s third stage, no more treatment. I will not prolong the agony in this office or anywhere.”
