BREAKING NEWS: John McCain diagnosed with brain cancer

in USA by

Senator John McCain, 80, has been diagnosed with brain cancer after having a blood clot surgically removed last week.

A statement by his daughter Meghan.

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 former presidential candidate, who has represented Arizona since 1987, went for his annual checkup, complaining of fatigue and double vision, CNN reported.

Doctors then performed cat scan, which led to a MRI scan of the brain where they found a blood clot.

McCain underwent surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona last Friday, where he had a blood clot removed.

Subsequent pathology tests confirmed the blood clot was associated with brain cancer.
