Former US President Jimmy Carter says a recent liver surgery revealed that he has cancer and it has spread to other parts of his body.

The 90-year-old statesman underwent surgery to remove a small mass in his liver earlier this month.

He said he would reveal more by next week when more facts are known.

Carter will undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare in Atlanta.

In a statement released yesterday, President Barack Obama wished Mr Carter a full and fast recovery.
