Senator Edward Kennedy has malignant brain tumor

BOSTON - A cancerous brain tumor caused the seizure Sen. Edward M. Kennedy suffered over the weekend, doctors said Tuesday in a grim diagnosis for one of American politics' most enduring figures. "He remains in good spirits and full of energy," the doctors for the 76-year-old Massachusetts Democrat said in a statement.

They said tests conducted after the seizure showed a tumor in Kennedy's left parietal lobe. Preliminary results from a biopsy of the brain identified the cause of the seizure as a malignant glioma, they said.

Gliomas can be pretty bad (at least in pediatrics) and alot is going to depend on how early or late they caught it. I have never been a big fan of his politics, but I would never wish this diagnosis on my worst enemy. Hopefully they caught it early and treatment is successfull

Eesh...Thanks for the update Fred. I'm not a big fan of his either, but the guy has been in the trenches for quite some time, no doubt. Hopefully they caught it early enough to save him.
