Argentina President back at job after cancer scare

Cristina Fernandez signed a series of agreements with Argentina`s provinces as her first official act.

Buenos Aires: Argentina`s President is back on the job after taking medical leave for surgery on her thyroid to deal with what turned out to be a false cancer scare.

The 58-year-old President Cristina Fernandez went back to Argentina`s Government House on Wednesday afternoon and signed a series of agreements with the country provinces as her first official act.

She showed off a scar on her neck from the operation.

Fernandez`s last public appearance was on December 28. That was a day after her office announced she had been diagnosed with thyroid cancer.

Doctors removed the gland January 04, and the President`s officer later announced that tests found the growth on her thyroid was benign.
