Unfortunately, Seve Ballesteros was undergoing a third operation Friday on his cancerous brain tumor.
This latest surgery is aimed at relieving pressure on his brain caused by swelling and bleeding. It will also remove remaining parts of the malignant tumor located in a very deep part of the brain.
The hospital said a statement would be released as soon as doctors report on the operation on the winner of five majors.
Ballesteros’ tumor is an oligoastrocytoma, which affects cells that cover and protect the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. I’ll post any news as it’s released.
