A stunning announcement came from the office of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) Wednesday night. According to the statement put out by his staff, doctors discovered a brain tumor during the Senator’s recent surgery.
Surgeons removed a blood clot located above McCain’s left eye on July 14. After the surgery, tissue pathology revealed “a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot.”
McCain’s “underlying health is excellent,” the statement says. Treatment options, including a combination of chemotherapy and radiation are being considered.
McCain, 80, had a melanoma on his left arm removed in 2000, and another from his nose in 2002. Neither was found to be a dangerous type of melanoma.
