Bishop Shaw’s tumor is cancerous

Bishop M. Thomas Shaw has learned that a tumor removed from his brain last week is malignant and he will need cancer treatments, according to the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts.

Shaw underwent brain surgery on May 17 after tests revealed the mass on the previous day, the diocese said in a post on its website Friday. The bishop met with his doctors at the Dana Farber Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center on Friday, where they discussed the diagnosis, the diocese said.
