Ex-Louisville G Kyle Kuric To Undergo Surgery To Remove Brain Tumor

Some scary news about former Louisville guard Kyle Kuric. The ex-Cardinal standout will undergo emergency surgery to remove a brain tumor, per a release from his Spanish professional club CB Gran Canarias. 

The type of tumor Kuric has is a meningioma

Meningiomas are a diverse set of tumors arising from the meninges, the membranous layers surrounding the central nervous system. They arise from the arachnoid "cap" cells of the arachnoid villi in the meninges. These tumors usually are benign in nature; however, a small percentage are malignant. 

Best wishes to Kyle, who became a father in August per his Twitter account.
