    APNewsBreak: Sen. Kennedy has malignant brain tumor
    By GLEN JOHNSON
    Associated Press Writer

    BOSTON (AP) _ Sen. Edward M. Kennedy say he has a malignant brain tumor.

    Doctors for the Massachusetts Democrat say tests conducted after Kennedy suffered a seizure this weekend show a tumor in his left parietal lobe. His treatment will be decided after more tests but the usual course includes combinations of radiation and chemotherapy.

    The 76-year-old senator has been hospitalized in Boston since Saturday, when he was airlifted from Cape Cod after a seizure at his home.

    His wife and children have been with him each day but have made no public statements.

    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.

    MSNBC is also crediting AP. But I'm not seeing anything on AP Exchange.
