CARACAS (Reuters) - Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez said Thursday he had a tumor but had undergone a successful operation in Cuba to extract the cancerous cells and was on the road to full recovery.

The 56-year-old was making his first televised speech to the nation since he had surgery on June 10 in Havana that triggered widespread speculation he might be seriously ill. (Reporting by Andrew Cawthorne and Daniel Wallis, Editing by Sandra Maler)
