Brainstem Glioma

A Brainstem glioma is an aggressive and dangerous Cancerous Glioma Tumor in the brainstem which starts in the Brain or Spinal cord tissue and typically spread throughout the Nervous System. It is more diagnosed in children and young adults under the age of twenty. Symptoms of Brainstem glioma can develop slowly and subtly and may go unnoticed for months. A sudden onset of symptoms tends to occur with more rapidly growing, high-grade tumors. In other cases, the symptoms may arise abruptly. Unlike most Brain tumors, Brainstem Glioma is not often treated with Neurosurgery due to complications in vital parts of the Brain. Without treatment, the life expectancy is typically a few months from the time of diagnosis.
