Former US President Jimmy Carter says tests show cancer is gone
Jimmy Carter's grandson says no cancer was detected the last time the former US president underwent a scan.
Jason Carter told The Associated Press in a text message that his grandfather "told me that the doctors couldn't find any cancer in his most recent scan".
It was not immediately known when the scan took place.
The elder Carter apparently shared the good news before giving a Sunday School lesson at Maranatha Baptist Church in his home town of Plains, Georgia. Jill Stuckey, a church leader who was present, said Mr Carter announced that a brain scan this week showed no cancer.
Mr Carter, 91, announced in August that he had been diagnosed with melanoma that spread to his brain.Jimmy Carter to mediate in Martin Luther King family battle Jimmy Carter returns to church after cancer treatment Cancer has spread to my brain, says Carter Jimmy Carter to undergo radiotherapy after liver cancer spreads to brain
