Longtime Democratic Senator Edward "Ted" Kennedy has been diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor and could undergo chemotherapy and radiation treatment, his doctors revealed Tuesday, the dpa reported.
The doctors said preliminary biopsy results showed the cause of the two seizures suffered over the weekend was a malignant glioma tumor in the head of the 76-year-old senator.
Kennedy was resting in Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and was moving around and in good condition, a statement by his doctor said, according to CNN.
Kennedy has been one of the more leftist members of the Senate, where he has been serving since winning a special election in 1962. He is the brother of former president John Kennedy, who was assasinated in 1963, and of Robert Kennedy, who died after being shot on the campaign trail in 1968.
