Three physicians today said that voters need more detail about John McCain’s 2000 bout with skin cancer, saying that specific information about the nature of the tumour could help determine whether McCain is likely to suffer a recurrence during the next four years.

The doctors spoke on a conference call organised by Robert Greenwald, a filmmaker who has produced Internet videos critical of the Republican candidate. The doctors declined to declare their political leanings, saying they were speaking out as American citizens rather than out of partisan motives. They were three out of 2,279 physicians who have signed a letter asking McCain for “full, public disclosure of all his medical records”. More than 47,000 people have signed the petition.  Source Article
