He posted a statement about the diagnosis on the website of The Carter Center on Wednesday.
“Recent liver surgery revealed that I have cancer that now is in other parts of my body. I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare,” Carter wrote. “A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week.”
Carter, 90, was the 39th President of the United States.
