Chavez underwent surgery Monday in Havana and aides said he was recovering well after a one-inch (two-centimeter) lesion was removed from the same part of the body where a larger, malignant tumor was taken out last summer. There has been no confirmation that the new tumor is cancerous. (AP Photo/Ariana Cubillos)
