The MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong has denied rumours that he suffered a stroke.
Receiving praise for his work, the businessman told reporters in the past month that he was recently in the US due to a surgery and not a stroke.
Speaking to a local radio station, Assin Central Region, Hon Kennedy Ohene Agyapong said he has to go and remove a tumor in his head.He said that he slipped in the bathroom and knocked his head, the right side of his head.
Some days later, he said he experienced a continuous headache for about five days and so he decided to go for a check-up.
The MP said a CT-scan at Lancet at East Legon in Accra detected a tumor on the left side of his head, which the doctor said was not from the fall and that it had been there for sometime.
When the doctor recommended that it should be removed, Agyapong said he travelled to the USA for further checks, which confirmed the tumor in the left side.
He said the doctor in the USA was able to tell him how long it had been there and commended the doctors at Lancet for being able to detect it.
He said the doctor in the USA also confirmed the size of the tumor, which had been detected by the doctor at Lancet to be almost the size of a computer mouse.
He was advised to remove it before it becomes cancerous and so he went ahead to remove it.
Agyapong said that was the medical procedure he recently underwent in the USA and disputed reports that he had a stroke.
