SINGAPORE – Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, who had a surgery on Monday to remove his prostate gland, was discharged from the Singapore General Hospital this morning, said the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO).

According to a statement from the PMO, Lee’s surgeon Professor Christopher Cheng said: â€œPMâ€™s pathology report is good.”
“The disease was small but potentially significant. We are very glad we were able to detect and remove it in time. PM should make a full recovery,” he said.
Meanwhile, according to the statement, Lee thanked the competent, dedicated and compassionate team of radiologists, pathologists, doctors, nurses, physiotherapists and everyone else who had treated him and helped see him through the operation. – BERNAMA
