Napoles to undergo biopsy-A A +A
Monday, April 7, 2014
DETAINED businesswoman and alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Napoles will undergo biopsy before she will be scheduled for any medical procedure, an Ospital ng Makati (OsMak) official said Monday.
OsMak director Dr. Ishmael Peralta said Napoles will undergo endometrial biopsy to get tissue samples from her uterus for further examination.
The procedure, however, will require the consent of Napoles and her doctors from the St. Luke's Medical Center.
Napoles has been in the hospital after a Makati Regional Trial Court handling her serious illegal detention case allowed the businesswoman to undergo a surgery to remove a cyst found in her uterus.
Earlier, doctors at the Philippine National Police General Hospital (PNP-GH) who initially checked Napoles found a mass in her uterus but her condition was "not life threatening."
Napoles has been detained at a police camp in Laguna for the non-bailable case filed by her relative Benhur Luy, the main whistleblower of the Priority Development Assistance (PDAF) scam. (Sunnex)
