Toronto Mayor Rob Ford transferred to another hospital for further tests on abdominal tumor

Toronto Mayor Rob Ford was transferred to a different hospital for further tests on an abdominal tumor.

No further update has been provided Thursday on his condition a day after an examination resulted in a working diagnosis of a tumor. Health officials say a CT scan is "very definitive for the tumor" but a "definitive diagnosis" is still to come.

Ford became an international celebrity last year after acknowledging using crack cocaine in a "drunken stupor" following months of denials. He returned to work in June after a rehab stint and is running for re-election on Oct. 27.

A biopsy will determine the type of tumor. Ford previously had abdominal surgery to remove a tumor on his appendix.

Doug Ford Sr., Ford's father, died of colon cancer in 2006.
