Until the day President Muhammadu Buhari traveled to London for 10 days medical vacation, very few privileged Nigerians knew what exactly prompted his sudden and largely unprepared journey to the UK. But is it clear to those that are privy to some pieces of information regarding his health that the president, like many others in his age, is having some health challenges even before becoming the president and has been visiting the United Kingdom from time to time for medical evaluation and treatment
DESERT HERALD can report that his condition since then has been very stable, manageable and not life threatening.
According to a credible insider Mr. Buhari’s known sickness then was prostate cancer, a common disease among men of his age. Prostate cancer is cancer (abnormal growth) of the prostate gland in men; sometimes, this situation requires surgery. In Radical Prostatectomy, the surgeon addresses the prostate cancer by removing the entire prostate gland. This surgery can be performed in many ways, such as laparoscopically (minimally-invasive), traditional open surgery, or using robots during the surgery. In all these variations, incisions are made in the patient’s body, and the prostate gland is removed. Even after removing it patients require periodic medical checkups and medications.
