LOS ANGELES -- World and Olympic figure skating champion Scott Hamilton has a benign brain tumor.

The 46-year-old Hamilton underwent a biopsy at The Cleveland Clinic, and doctors expected to release him from the hospital by Friday, publicist Michael Sterling said Thursday.

"We will be working with him on a treatment plan moving forward," said Dr. Gene Barnett, chairman of the clinic's brain tumor institute.

Barnett said Hamilton has a slow-growing, non-cancerous tumor in the region of the pituitary gland.

Sterling said Hamilton has had problems in recent weeks with his eyesight.

Hamilton, who lives in Los Angeles, is a four-time U.S. national champion, a four-time world champion and the 1984 Olympic gold medalist.

He is now a skating show producer. He was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1997 and treated with surgery and chemotherapy.
