Senator John McCain (R-AZ) Has Brain Cancer

US Senator John McCain, 80 anni, has a brain tumor and is reviewing treatment options that may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation, his office said Wednesday.

The 6-term Republican Senator and Y 2008 Presidential nominee has been recovering at home in Arizona since undergoing surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix last Friday to remove a blood clot from above his left eye.

Tissue analysis since that procedure revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the clot, his office said.

This is the same aggressive brain cancer that felled former Sen. Ted Kennedy and Joe Biden’s eldest son.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called Senator McCain, the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee a hero and said he looked forward to having him back in Washington.

“We all look forward to seeing this American hero again soon,” Senator McConnell said in a statement.

Senator McCain’s doctors said he was recovering from his surgery “amazingly well” and that his underlying health was excellent.
