Now the time has arrived for John McCain to make his exit from the United States Senate. His medical condition is worse than was originally reported but the tests have now come come back and McCain is seriously ill with brain cancer.
According to a report in the Washington Times, the Arizona Republican has been diagnosed with brain cancer. The revelation was contained in a statement released Wednesday evening by Mayo Clinic. The cancer was discovered following surgery last week to remove a blood clot from above his left eye.
McCain has a history of melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer that can spread to the brain and cause bleeding. That cancer history could have prompted Mr. McCain’s doctors to scan his brain even in the absence of symptoms. Whatever prompted the discovery of the clot, it was removed through surgery into his skull. The tissue sample taken from the surgery was submitted for testing, those results now revealing the presence of cancer.
The Mayo Clinic statement said, “Subsequent tissue pathology revealed that a primary brain tumor known as a glioblastoma was associated with the blood clot.”.
McCain’s office said, “The senator’s overall health is fine and he is ‘recovering from his surgery amazingly well. The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with the Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.”
It would now be impossible for his to continue in his current office, with the possibility of his judgment, however suspect it has been throughout his Senate career, now completely in question and every action subject to second guessing as to his possible impairment.
Get your treatment, Senator, and resign from your seat in the Senate. Do it for your own health and for the good of the nation. There can only be one correct decision in this instance.
