John McCain, on a hike, just days after he was diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Glioblastoma, or GBM, is the most frequently diagnosed malignant brain tumor and represents about 15 percent of all primary brain tumors. It's the aggressive brain cancer Sen.

Meghan McCain shared a photo today of her and her father, Sen.

Unlike other treatments, the virus can pass through the blood brain barrier, which is meant to keep out harmful substances.

McCain on Thursday vowed to return to the Senate. "Obviously, it's not curative treatment but palliative treatment so that he's not suffering". "I'm hoping I'm cured".

He and his family are weighing his treatment, including radiation and chemotherapy.

"In all the ways I measure good Senate colleagues (honor, class, integrity) Kelli Ward falls short", Manchin tweeted Saturday.

"I hope that Sen".

Michael noted that many individuals with cancerous brain tumors are now living longer.

In almost every case, patients with glioblastomas see a recurrence of their tumor 6-7 months after their surgery.

"These are normal brain cells with blood supply, so when a tumor develops from these unhealthy brain cells, astrocytes, their blood supply is also unhealthy, so sometimes those blood vessels become thickened, irregular". About half are the cancerous type that McCain and Klein are dealing with.

That's standard, and the care can take weeks to months.

But this kind of tumour, formally known as a glioblastoma multiforme, is aggressive and sneaky. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, R, will have to appoint someone from the same party to fill the vacancy until the 2018 general election.

"I greatly appreciate the outpouring of support — unfortunately for my sparring partners in Congress, I'll be back soon, so stand-by!"

Ward went on to talk about what Arizona law requires in the event that McCain does leave office.

'As a doctor, I've counseled people in similar situations and these end-of-life choices are never easy, ' Ward said. But doctors classified this new cancer as a "primary tumour", meaning it's not related to his former malignancies.

That said, "patients with certain types of mutations or genetic profiles can live longer", five years or more, cautioned Dr. Michael Lim, a Johns Hopkins University neurosurgeon.

Trials also are going on to treat brain cancers with immunotherapy and vaccines. Showing no signs of stepping back from political and national security battles, he issued a statement slamming the Trump administration over its Syria policy.
