Kulsoom Nawaz undergoes medical tests after chemotherapy session


Sharing her mother’s medical condition on social media, Maryam Nawaz posted that Begum Kulsoom Nawaz was brought to hospital for medical tests on Friday after her third chemotherapy session.

Kulsoom is undergoing chemotherapy in London after being diagnosed with lymphoma — a cancer of the lymph nodes. Maryam said her mother was taken to the hospital for a CT and Gallium scan after her third chemotherapy session.

The scans were conducted to assess the response to the treatment. Nawaz is in London after the court had exempted him for a short duration from appearing in the hearings held for the NAB references registered against him.

Kulsoom has so far had three surgeries as part of her throat cancer treatment in London. Although she contested and won the NA-120 seat, she had left for medical treatment before the by-poll, with her daughter Maryam campaigning on her behalf.
