Arizona Senator John McCain has been diagnosed with brain cancer. The 80-year-old veteran politician was given the diagnosis last week after the he had a blood clot removed. CNN's report says it is 'aggressive'.
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.
“The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation."
