Health Minister Endang Rahayu Sedyaningsih has been diagnosed with cancer, an official said Sunday.
“Lung cancer has been detected," health policy special staff official Bambang Sulistomo said, as quoted by tempointeraktif.com.
The news came as a surprise considering Endang’s healthy lifestyle and appearance, he said, adding that the minister had been undergoing treatment in Guang Zhou, China. “One visit to China usually lasts four to five days,”
Bambang said that thus far Endang’s work had not been affected, but did not know the severity of her condition.
