The Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has revealed he underwent brain surgery in the United States of America (USA), which cost US$283,000 to remove a tumor.
In a radio interview in the Central Region, he denied reports that he had a stroke.
Rather, Mr. Agyapong said he slipped in the bathroom and knocked his head, the right side of his head.
Some days later, he said he experienced a continuous headache for about five days and so he decided to go for a check-up.
He said a CT-scan at Lancet at East Legon in Accra detected a tumor on the left side of his head, which the doctor said was not from the fall and that it had been there for some time.
When the doctor recommended that it should be removed, Mr Agyapong said he travelled to the USA for further checks, which confirmed the tumor in the left side.
He said the doctor in the USA was able to tell him how long it had been there and commended the doctors at Lancet for being able to detect it.
He said the doctor in the USA also confirmed the size of the tumor, which had been detected by the doctor at Lancet to be almost the size of a computer mouse.
He was advised to remove it before it becomes cancerous and so he went ahead to remove it.
Mr Agyapong said that was the medical condition he recently underwent in the USA and disputed reports that he had a stroke.
