Ted Kennedy Released From Hospital
Date:5/21/2008

He returns to Cape Cod home while doctors determine treatment plans for malignant brain tumor

WEDNESDAY, May 21 (HealthDay News) -- Sen. Edward M. Kennedy walked out of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston on Wednesday, one day after it was revealed that he has a malignant brain tumor.

With a square bandage at the back of his head marking the spot where doctors had performed a biopsy that led to the diagnosis of a malignant glioma, Kennedy flashed a thumbs-up sign to well-wishers and kissed his relatives before driving off to his family compound in Hyannisport on Cape Cod.

The hospital released a statement from Kennedy's doctors on Wednesday, according to the Boston Globe, that said: "Senator Kennedy has recovered remarkably quickly from his Monday procedure and therefore will be released from the hospital today ahead of schedule. He will return to his home on Cape Cod while we await further test results and determine treatment plans. He's feeling well and eager to get started."

Doctors treating the 76-year-old senator, who had been in Massachusetts General Hospital since he suffered a seizure on Saturday, said Tuesday that tests showed the malignant tumor in his left parietal lobe.

Dr. Lee Schwamm, vice chairman in the department of neurology, and Dr. Larry Ronan, the senator's primary care physician, issued a statement Tuesday that read: "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 Sen. Kennedy will be determined after further testing and analysis."

The American Cancer Society estimates that 21,810 malignant tumors of the brain or spinal cord will be diagnosed this year in the United States. Approximately 13,070 people -- 7,420 men and 5,650 wome
