Kulsoom Nawaz health worsens, reveal latest medical report

LONDON - Begum Kulsoom Nawaz’s health has been worsening after her throat cancer began to spread to the rest of her body, medical tests indicate.

The ailing wife of former prime minister Nawaz Sharif was admitted to a hospital in London in September 2017 after she was diagnosed with a throat cancer. She underwent a surgery wherein doctors removed the cancerous tumours in her throat.

However, six chemotherapy sessions later, her cancer has returned and is spreading to the rest of her body, sources familiar with the matter said.

Begum Kulsoom was re-hospitalised a few days ago after she vomited excessively and complained of dehydration. Upon further diagnosis, her doctors suggested that she undergo radiotherapy and stay in hospital longer.

According to sources, another surgery may be required in the next few days due to the resurgence of the cancer.
