SAO PAULO - Former Brazilian president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva was diagnosed on Saturday with a tumor in the larynx and will undergo chemotherapy in the coming days.

Lula, as the former president is universally known, was being treated at Sao Paulo's Sirio Libanes Hospital, the same hospital where current Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff was treated for cancer before taking office last January.

The hospital, a renowned cancer treatment center, said in a statement that Lula was doing well and would start undergoing chemotherapy in the coming days as the first course of action.
