McCain’s office and the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix announced Wednesday night that McCain had surgery on Friday to remove a blood clot in his left eye.
“Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot,” the hospital said in a statement.
According to the hospital, McCain and his family are reviewing further treatment options, which may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.
McCain’s Senate office said he is in “good spirits” and recovering at home in Arizona with his family.
“Further consultations with Senator McCain’s Mayo Clinic care team will indicate when he will return to the United States Senate,” the statement said.
