Pavarotti's Hospital Stay Extended To Allow For More Tests

ROME (AP) -- Doctors at an Italian hospital are keeping Luciano Pavarotti for a few more days so they can run more tests on the tenor's pancreatic cancer.

The 71-year-old was admitted earlier this month with a high fever. The hospital says the fever is gone, but doctors want to keep him around for testing.

The opera star had surgery for his cancer last July in New York. Pancreatic cancer is one of the deadliest forms of the disease, though doctors say the surgery should help.

Pavarotti has been out of the public spotlight since his operation.
