McCain Says He's Fighting 'Virulent' Form of Cancer

McCain Says He's Fighting 'Virulent' Form of Cancer

Still, he stressed the seriousness of the disease and said he did not want to paint a "rosy picture" for what he said is a tough form of cancer. Subsequent tests revealed a primary brain tumor associated with the blood clot.

Mr. McCain said, "I think it ought to be done in a comprehensive fashion".

On Sunday, CNN's Jake Tapper asked McCain a long question about Hurricane Irma and global warming and GOP climate denial, noting "the storm is more intense, experts say, because of climate change". "The prognosis is pretty good".

McCain, who comes from a family of Navy admirals, spent five years in a North Vietnamese prison camp after his plane was shot down in 1967.

"This is a very vicious form of cancer that I'm facing", McCain, a Republican who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008, told CNN's "State of the Union" program. I'm very happy with what I've been able to do. "And there's two ways of looking at these things". "Everything so far has gone very, very well, and I'm very grateful".

"In fact, solar and other technologies make it cheaper for energy for numerous American people, including a state like mine, where we have lots of sunshine", he added. "I know a lot of people want to interview you".

Mr McCain recently completed his first round of chemotherapy and radiation, and he said that he would have an MRI today, an imaging technique used to evaluate medical conditions. "Made a lot of mistakes, made a lot of errors, but served this country". But served his country. "All of these problems that you and I are discussing and want to discuss require what our founding fathers wanted us to do".
