Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has been diagnosed with a brain tumor, his office said Wednesday.

The Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix said tests revealed “a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma” associated with a blood clot above his left eye that was removed last week.

“The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team,” said the hospital in a statement. “Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”

McCain, 80, was treated for the blood clot last week. His office announced last Saturday that he would be away from the Senate all of this week.

“The Senator’s doctors say he is recovering from his surgery ‘amazingly well’ and his underlying health is excellent,” the hospital said in its statement.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) issued the following statement Wednesday: “John McCain is a hero to our Conference and a hero to our country. He has never shied from a fight and I know that he will face this challenge with the same extraordinary courage that has characterized his life. The entire Senate family’s prayers are with John, Cindy and his family, his staff, and the people of Arizona he represents so well.

“We all look forward to seeing this American hero again soon.”

    • So the republican party is only the big tent party for election years? You know the republican party used to be more than just conservative only!

    • RINO stands for Respect invested nazis out. I guess he was just one of those guys who hates you who have given us the hate politics of Trump.

  1. Zalman of Sommerset, now when John McCain needs all our prayers is not the time to disparage and belittle him. You don’t knock someone when they’re down.

    May Hashem send him a speedy recovery.

  2. I think most pple are not surprised. I watched his questioning and crossexamining at the last capitol hill hearing and it was obvious that he couldn’t follow his train of thoughts. He was mumbling different sentences incoherently. It was actually quite scary to watch. His reaction and actions on capitol hill as of late was also very inconsistent to the kind of man he was all the years. Very sad.

  3. Lemaaseh he is a oihaiv yisroel. He has helped us many times. A little hakaras hatov is in order. Remember how he stepped in immediately to help us after the terrible helicopter accident in the summer of 2001 which took place at the grand Canyon? More recently he helped out when a couple of Yiddisheh girls were involved in a terrible car accident in Arizona. You people should put aside your political differences and daven for him.
