Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has been diagnosed with brain cancer, CNN reports.
The news comes after the senator underwent surgery for a blood clot above his left eye. The Arizona Republic’s Dan Nowicki reports a tissue pathology revealed “a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma.”
The McCains are reportedly “reviewing further treatment options,” including “a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”
