Doctors discover Sen. Kennedy has a Brain Tumor

Tuesday, May 20, 2008




Doctors say Massachusetts Senator Edward Kennedy has a brain tumor, a condition discovered after he had a seizure over the weekend.

Tests show a tumor in his left parietal-lobe. The usual course of treatment includes combinations of radiation and chemotherapy, but Kennedy's treatment will be decided after more tests.

Kennedy was admitted to Massachusetts General Hospital on Saturday after becoming ill following a walk with his dogs at his oceanfront home on Cape Cod.

Kennedy's office had said yesterday that the senator was not expected back at work this week.

His doctors said in a statement released to The Associated Press that he has had no further seizures, is in good spirits and is resting comfortably.

Statement from Dr. Lee Schwamm, Vice Chairman, Department of Neurology, Massachusetts General Hospital, and Dr. Larry Ronan, Primary Care Physician, Massachusetts General Hospital:

"Over the course of the last several days, we've done a series of tests on Senator Kennedy to determine the cause of his seizure.

He has had no further seizures, remains in good overall condition, and is up and walking around the hospital.

Some of the tests we had performed were inconclusive, particularly in light of the fact that the Senator had severe narrowing of the left carotid artery and underwent surgery just 6 months ago.

However, preliminary results from a biopsy of the brain identified the cause of the seizure as a malignant glioma in the left parietal lobe.

The usual course of treatment includes combinations of various forms of radiation and chemotherapy.

Decisions regarding the best course of treatment for Senator Kennedy will be determined after further testing and analysis.

Senator Kennedy will remain at Massachusetts General Hospital for the next couple of days according to routine protocol. He remains in good spirits and full of energy."





Brain tumors are classified depending on the exact site of the tumor, the type of tissue involved, benign or malignant tendencies of the tumor, and other factors. Primary brain tumors can arise from the brain cells, the meninges (membranes around the brain), nerves, or glands.

Some Material from the Associated Press used in this report.

Update :

While Sen. Edward Kennedy's family comes to grips with news he has a brain tumor, a neurologist from Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center says the senator will face an uphill fight.

"Surgery alone... will not cure this cancer," said Dr. Michael Biber of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in an interview with R.D. Sahl. Biber, who is not affailiated with Kennedy's treatment team, said Kennedy's cancer will likely be treated with a combination of chemotherapy and radiation, with surgery a possibility depending on the tumor's location in the senator's left parietal lobe.

But Biber notes that gliomas are impossible to eradicate with surgery, which limits the long-term prognosis for Sen. Kennedy.
