Senator John McCain underwent surgery Friday to remove a blood clot above his left eye. Further testing has revealed that McCain has brain cancer.
Senator John McCain (R. AZ) underwent surgery on Friday to fix a blood clot. It was a minor surgery and he was released the next day. Reports from The Mayo Clinic show that the blood clot was 5-centimeters in size and above his left eye.
“The senator is resting comfortably at home and is in good condition. His Mayo Clinic doctors report that the surgery went ‘very well’ and he is in good spirits,” the Mayo Clinic statement said. “Once the pathology information is available, further care will be discussed between doctors and the family. In the meantime, his Mayo Clinic care team will not be conducting interviews.”
After testing some tissue, it has been discovered that McCain has brain cancer.
“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.
“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.”
Could this be why McCain has been acting so odd and confused? Well according to The Mayo Clinic, symptoms of brain cancer include new or increasingly strong headaches, blurred vision, loss of balance, confusion, and seizures. In some cases, there may be no symptoms.
This is very sad, I may not agree with John McCain, but I would never wish cancer on anyone. I do however think this is why he has been so confused. I also think this is exactly why we need mandatory physical well being tests for everyone in our government. This is exactly why I started my petition.
The majority of the individuals in the Congress are over 70 years old. According to the ASHA starting at age 65, the risk of developing Dementia doubles every 5 years. And according to Alz.org after 65 as well the risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease doubles.
McCain will be back in the Senate within a few weeks his staff reports. This is very troubling as McCain is 80 years old and has shown numerous signs of a diminishing touch on reality. Sign the above petition to ensure psychological stability in our government!
