HYANNIS PORT, Mass. (AP) -- Sen. Edward M. Kennedy said it was "good to be home" after flying back to Massachusetts a week after undergoing an aggressive and delicate surgery to treat a cancerous brain tumor.
Kennedy left the hospital Monday morning and arrived at his family's compound in Hyannis Port on Cape Cod just before noon.
Kennedy told reporters waiting outside his home, "It's good to be home, good to be here."
The Massachusetts Democrat was diagnosed last month with a malignant glioma, a lethal type of brain tumor, after having a seizure. A malignant glioma is one of the worst kinds of brain cancer, and malignant gliomas are diagnosed in about 9,000 Americans a year.
