Jimmy Carter, the oldest living former president, was recovering and remained hospitalized Tuesday after brain surgery that morning "to relieve pressure on his brain" following bleeding caused by a series of falls, his office said.

Carter is the longest-lived USA president, and he is also a cancer survivor, having been successfully treated for melanoma that had spread to his liver and his brain, which was diagnosed in 2015.
