    WASHINGTON (AP) — A doctor says an American man imprisoned in Cuba may
    have a cancerous growth on his shoulder, contradicting the Cuban
    government's stance that his health is normal.

    A lawyer for Alan Gross said Tuesday in a statement that an independent
    physician reviewed medical records sent by Cuba. The doctor says that
    the mass must be assumed to be cancerous unless proven otherwise.

    Alan Gross' wife, Judy Gross, released a statement begging Cuban
    President Raul Castro not to let her husband "die on your watch" and
    asking that he be allowed to be diagnosed by a doctor of his choosing.

    Gross, a 63-year-old U.S. government subcontractor from Montgomery
    County, Md., has been in prison in Cuba since late 2009. His case has
    become a sticking point in U.S.-Cuba relations.
