Nik Aziz refutes cancer claims
Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has dismissed a local news portal’s claims that he has been diagnosed with cancer.
“I admit that three of my heart valves are clogged. Apart from that, I am in the pink of health,” he said, adding that a recent medical check up had also shown his cholesterol to be low.
“The claims made by the blog are pure rubbish because doctors have given me a clean bill, except for my heart,” he told reporters at his office here Wednesday.
Nik Abdul Aziz, who is also the PAS spiritual adviser, was asked to comment on the report which alleged his health was deteriorating and that he had been diagnosed with cancer.
The portal also alleged that specialists at Universiti Sains Malaysia Hospital (HUSM) in Kubang Kerian had confirmed that the octogenarian had been diagnosed with cancer two weeks ago and was undergoing chemotheraphy at HUSM.
