Luciano Pavarotti Treated for Pancreatic Cancer
Luciano Pavarotti, age 70, has undergone surgery for pancreatic cancer:
The man considered by many to be the world's greatest tenor is "recovering well" after the operation at a hospital in New York this week, his manager said. "Mr Pavarotti underwent a diagnostic evaluation and a malignant pancreatic mass was identified," said Terri Robson. "Fortunately, the mass was able to be completely removed at surgery."
