Ex-mayor Ford's cancerous tumor has shrunk in half

Posted:

 The brother of Rob Ford says the cancerous tumor the former Toronto mayor has been getting treatment for has shrunk in half.

   Doug Ford said Tuesday the tumor -- which doctors had initially said was 12 centimeters (4.7 inches) by 12 centimeters in size -- is now down to 6 centimeters (2.4 inches) by 6 centimeters.

   Doug Ford says his brother will be finishing a fifth round of chemotherapy soon and will also get radiation treatment.

   Ford was diagnosed with a rare form of abdominal cancer in September and dropped his bid for mayoral re-election shortly afterward. Instead, he ran for a seat on the city council and won.

   In November, Rob Ford said his tumor had not shrunk, but had not gotten larger either.
