Former US President Jimmy Carter 'responding well to cancer treatment'

America’s 39th President, Jimmy Carter revealed his battle with liver cancer in August. That same month he had a surgery but the cancer had spread to his brain.

Carter, 91, was told he had 'four spots of melanoma on his brain'.

He recently received good news that the cancer had stopped spreading and he's “responding well to treatment” at Emory University’s Winship Cancer Institute in Atlanta.

Yesterday, the Carter Center said: "They tell him that recent tests have shown there is no evidence of new malignancy, and his original problem is responding well to treatment."

Carter was president from 1977-1981 and won a Nobel Peace Prize in 2002.
