The announcement comes on the heels of news that the 80-year-old underwent surgery to remove a 2-inch blood clot above his left eye, as previously reported by Radar.

At the request of McCain and his family, Mayo Clinic revealed the latest news in a statement on Wednesday:

"Scanning done since the procedure (a minimally invasive craniotomy with an eyebrow incision) shows that the tissue of concern was completely resected by imaging criteria.

"The Senator and his family are reviewing further treatment options with his Mayo Clinic care team. Treatment options may include a combination of chemotherapy and radiation.

"The Senator's doctors say he is recovering from his surgery 'amazingly well' and his underlying health is excellent."
