Barcelona coach Tito Vilanova says he will travel to New York for a short checkup on his throat after having a tumor removed last December.
Following that surgery in Barcelona, Vilanova spent 10 weeks receiving treatment at a New York hospital.
It was the second tumor on a saliva gland he has had removed in two years.
Vilanova said on Sunday that "tomorrow I leave for New York and I won't return until Thursday. It's to do tests. In this process you have to check everything."
