MEXICO CITY (AP) -- Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has been released from a military hospital three days after undergoing surgery to remove a thyroid nodule.
The president issued a brief statement as he left Mexico City's Central Military Hospital on Saturday, saying he feels "very well."
The 47-year-old Pena Nieto says he will continue to rest over the weekend at the presidential residence, though he also will have some private meetings. He says he'll be back to a full schedule next week.
Doctors say they found no evidence of malignancy in the nodule removed on Wednesday.
