Teddy Kennedy Has Malignant Brain Tumor
Sad Breaking News from CNN:
Sen. Edward Kennedy has a malignant brain tumor. The hospital treating Kennedy released a statement today saying that the tumor was found during tests after the senator had a seizure Saturday. The tumor is in his left parietal lobe.
His treatment will be decided after more tests but the usual course includes combinations of radiation and chemotherapy.
Average survival can range from less than a year for very advanced and aggressive types — such as glioblastomas — or to about five years for different types that are slower growing.
