BUENOS AIRES - Argentine President Cristina Fernandez will be operated on for thyroid cancer on Wednesday, her supporters having lined up outside the hospital since the night before with signs saying "Strength Cristina."

The government last week announced her diagnosis of papillary carcinoma, detected during a routine medical checkup just before Christmas. Doctors say the 58-year-old Fernandez has a better than 90 percent chance of recovery.

The diagnosis sparked sympathy in a country where Eva Peron, wife of former leader Juan Peron and known as Evita, is revered decades after dying of cancer at the age of 33.
