Shehbaz Sharif Declared Cancer-Free by Specialist in London

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) President Shehbaz Sharif received uplifting news on Friday as his cancer specialist in London confirmed that all tests showed no signs of the rare disease that had plagued him for years.

Shehbaz, who arrived in the UK on August 20, underwent a battery of cancer-related tests, which are a routine part of his annual medical check-up. Dr. Martyn Caplin, a distinguished cancer specialist, reviewed the results.

It’s worth noting that Shehbaz was diagnosed with the rare and perilous “Adenocarcinoid” cancer in 2000. In 2003, he received extensive treatment at New York’s Sloane Kettering Hospital, where doctors advised him to undergo regular check-ups in London under Dr. Caplin’s care.

A source at Wellington Hospital in St. John’s Wood, where Shehbaz has been attending appointments, shared the positive news: “Dr. Martyn Caplin has confirmed that Shehbaz Sharif is cancer-free with no signs of recurrence.”

Additionally, the former Punjab chief minister has scheduled spine-related check-ups for the upcoming week at a Harley Street clinic in London, where he regularly undergoes examinations.

Shehbaz intends to return to Pakistan once his upcoming non-cancer-related check-ups, which are expected to conclude in approximately ten days, are completed. During his stay in London, he met with his elder brother and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif to discuss crucial political developments leading up to the general elections.

It’s important to highlight that the PML-N president announced that his brother, Nawaz Sharif, will return to Pakistan in October of this year. During his time in London, the former prime minister and Nawaz also met with Mahnoor Cheema, a top scorer in the GCSE exams and a world record holder. Shehbaz’s London visit primarily focuses on his medical treatment and spending time with his elder brother, Nawaz Sharif.
