A small growth has been detected in PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim's kidney, his daughter Nurul Nuha Anwar revealed tonight.
Speaking at a forum at the KL Chinese Assembly Hall, the said her father underwent a minor procedure this morning at Kuala Lumpur General Hospital, where a small polyp in his kidney was detected.
"Hopefully, it is not cancerous as it is very small," she said, adding that a histopathology would be carried out soon to determine the true nature of the polyp.
According to her, Anwar had been experiencing irregular blood pressure and black stools for some weeks now.
She also said that while his deteriorating health condition was brought to the attention of the prison doctor, Anwar still had to wait for clearance from Home Minister Zahid Hamidi before proper medical treatment could be sought at the hospital.
She also said her family had written numerous times to the doctor and prison authorities but ended up waiting three weeks before the Home Ministry gave Anwar clearance to go to hospital.
Anwar underwent an MRI scan and had an X-ray taken for a bad shoulder on Tuesday and is due back in prison tomorrow, Nurul Nuha said, adding that biopsy results will only be out next week.
Speaking on behalf of her family, she pleaded with the Home Minister to refrain from denying her father medical attention in the future and to put politics aside in view of her father's fragile health at this moment.
The former Opposition Leader is currently serving a five-year prison sentence for sodomy.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim has been discharged from Hospital Kuala Lumpur (HKL) and will be continuing treatment at Sungai Buloh Prison.
“Praise God, the doctor has allowed me to leave. I will continue my treatment at Sungai Buloh Prison while waiting on the results of the medical test,” tweeted Anwar on Friday.
Anwar was admitted to HKL on Tuesday for a series of scheduled test.

After visiting her husband on Tuesday, she told reporters that Anwar has lost weight and looked “skinny and gaunt”.
The former opposition leader is also said to be suffering from high blood pressure and chronic shoulder pain.
Anwar was jailed in February for five years on charges that he sodomized a former male aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan in 2008, a case he claims was fabricated by the government.
