New Delhi, March 31: A 15-year-old Afghan boy, who was suffering from severe cancer of the intestine, successfully underwent surgery here, hospital authorities said on Tuesday. Amir, a budding cricket player, started experiencing weight loss, blood in the stools and tiredness. His decreasing appetite was a major cause of concern not just while playing but also while performing other day-to-day activities. These issues became a hurdle between him and his selection in the country’s tiol team. Consultations with several doctors in Afghanistan went in vain as the problem could not be diagnosed. One of the reasons behind it also was the lack of proper medical facilities in war-torn Afghanistan.(IANS)
