Venezuela's Chavez may face chemotherapy for cancer

CARACAS - Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez acknowledged for the first time on Wednesday he may need radiotherapy or chemotherapy for ongoing treatment after cancer surgery in Cuba, the presidential office said.
"I'm in the second stage of the disease, (going through) an organ-by-organ assessment and other factors, I mustn't give more details," Chavez told state TV, according to a transcript.
His office said the next, third phase of treatment "could mean the application of radiotherapy or chemotherapy" for the 56-year-old socialist leader.
