Fernando Lugo, the 59 year old Roman Catholic bishop-turned-president of Paraguay, has been diagnosed with lymphoma, according to a report by Reuters. The President underwent an excisional biopsy of a node in his groin earlier this week and subsequent pathology revealed the diagnosis, although the report does not indicate which subtype.

Lugo, who has held the presidency since 2008, will visit with specialists in Brazil to determine further treatment.
