Kulsoom Nawaz, wife of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, has been diagnosed with throat cancer, a report has claimed.

Quoting sources, Express News reported that the former first lady was diagnosed with the disease in London, where she went for medical tests last week.

Doctors, however, said the type of cancer Kulsoom is suffering from is treatable, saying she will undergo treatment soon for a speedy recovery.

Kulsoom, the sources added, will not be part of the campaign to contest elections in NA-120 constituency, the seat which fell vacant following Nawaz's dismissal.

Insiders said Maryam Nawaz will lead the campaign, adding that Kulsoom may also join the drive in the last week prior to the polls.

A five-member Supreme Court bench on July 28 disqualified Nawaz from the PM’s office for failing to declare a salary, which he had not withdrawn as an executive of Dubai-based company, as an asset when filing his nomination papers in 2013.
