WASHINGTON (AP) — Doctors say Arizona Sen. John McCain has a brain tumor associated with a blood clot that was removed last week.

In a statement late Wednesday, doctors reveal that McCain has been diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer. The statement says the 80-year-old senator and his family are reviewing further treatment, including a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.

The senator has been recovering at his Arizona home after doctors at the Mayo Clinic removed a blood clot above his left eye.

The doctors say McCain is recovering from his surgery amazingly well and his underlying health is excellent, according to the statement.

McCain was the GOP’s presidential nominee in 2008. A Navy pilot, he was shot down over Vietnam and held as a prisoner for 5 ½ years.

    Wow Kates that had to be tough all within basically one or two years apart from the other, I lesser person would have crumbled under the weight of grief. But look at you…on here fighting the good fight and staying strong lol. I remember you saying how the world got a lot meaner after your sister died, I feel that way almost every single day and sometimes I’m the cause lol. You sound like a tough but sensitive lady, and we don’t always agree but I respect that.

    • We absolutely don’t always agree on certain things, but what a dull and boring world this would be if everyone agreed on everything. But the ability to show empathy and compassion for a fellow human being who has suffered through tragedy and loss is something I think all but the most callous and sociopathic among us, would find is a virtue that reveals true humanity in us.

  2. He is a survivor shot down over Vietnam and survived, on the flight deck of the USS Forestall a stray electrical pulse caused a zuni rocket loaded on his plane fire killing 130 crewmen
    Let’s hope for the best unfortunately an oncology doctor interviewed said prognosis isn’t good

  3. Gosh, I’m sorry to hear this, I wish him well and hope he wins his battle. My favorite auntie died from brain cancer in Dec, she had several tumors, they tried to remove as many as they could and she had chemo, but in the end she lost her battle in a very short period of time. She’s in God’s hands now. My prayers to Mr. McCain and his family.

        Thank u Kates. Sorry for your past loss as well. Yes, just like motherly love sisterly love is special. I have to other sisters. I love them, but it’s not the same.

      • Yeah. When my grandmother died in 1998, it hurt. When my mother died seven months later, in 1999, it threw me for a loop. But when my big sister died in 2001, it knocked my legs out from under me. It’s just something about losing a sister that’s a different kind of hurt. I know you’ll never forget your precious sister, but I hope all your memories of her make her passing bearable. Bless you and specialt757.
