Carter tells of tumours


ATLANTA: With a broad smile and an upbeat attitude, former US president Jimmy Carter has told the world that he has brain cancer and feels “perfectly at ease with whatever comes”.

Mr Carter said doctors had removed melanoma from his liver but found four small tumours in his brain.

Later, he had the first of four targeted injections of a newly approved drug to help his immune system find and destroy the cancer cells wherever else they may appear in his body.

Mr Carter is 90 years old.
