Napoles to have biopsy today

/ 02:08 PM April 07, 2014


MANILA, Philippines – Alleged pork barrel scam mastermind Janet Lim-Napoles would undergo a biopsy on Monday ahead of her surgery to remove a cyst in her uterus, Inquirer Radio 990AM reported Monday.

Napoles would undergo endometrial biopsy that seeks to remove a small tissue along the lining of her uterus for examination, the report said, quoting Dr. Perry Peralta, medical director of the state-run Ospital ng Makati (OsMak).


Last April 2, the Makati Regional Trial Court Branch 150 allowed Napoles to undergo a surgery in OsMak for the cyst in her uterus, but it rejected Napoles’ appeal to have it done in St. Luke’s Medical Center in Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

But the court allowed Napoles’ doctors in St. Luke’s to conduct the surgery in OsMak.


Napoles is expected to be confined for 26 days after her surgery.

Napoles is currently detained for serious illegal detention charges filed against her at the Makati court by her cousin and former employee, pork barrel scam principal whistle-blower Benhur Luy.
