What Is Anaplastic Astrocytoma?

Battling a progressive disease begins with being armed with essential information.

Astrocytomas are brain tumors that originate in star-shaped brain cells in the cerebrum, which medical scientists refer to as astrocytes. Astrocytes form part of the tissue that guards the nerve cells in your brain and spine.

Astrocytomas are classified according to their grade. Grade I and grade II astrocytomas grow slowly and are benign (noncancerous). Grade III and grade IV astrocytomas proliferate faster and are malignant (cancerous). An anaplastic astrocytoma is a rare type of grade 3 astrocytoma. It is an aggressive form of brain cancer and can be very serious if left untreated.

Anaplastic Astrocytoma Symptoms

Signs of anaplastic astrocytoma vary depending on the location of the tumor. Signs and symptoms include:

  • Headaches
  • Changes in mental confusion
  • Sudden and escalating memory loss
  • Lethargy and recurrent feelings of drowsiness
  • Nausea often accompanied by vomiting
  • Vision problems
  • Coordination and balance issues
  • Seizures

Speak with a medical professional if you experience one or more of the above symptoms. An accurate diagnosis, followed by proper treatment, can improve your anaplastic astrocytoma prognosis and life expectancy.

Causes of Anaplastic Astrocytoma

Researchers are unsure of the exact causes of anaplastic astrocytomas. However, they may be associated with:

  • Immune system abnormalities
  • Exposure to UV rays and carcinogenic chemicals
  • Receipt of radiation therapy near the head
  • A family history of genetic disorders, such as:
    • Neurofibromatosis Type I (NF1)
    • Li-Fraumeni Syndrome
    • Tuberous Sclerosis

Not all men and women with risk factors develop anaplastic astrocytoma, and not everyone without risk factors is immune to the disorder.

Diagnostic Tests for Anaplastic Astrocytoma

Anaplastic astrocytoma occurs in 5 to 8 people per 100,000 in the general population, suggesting its rarity. To diagnose anaplastic astrocytoma, your doctor will start with a physical examination to rule out other possible causes of your symptoms. Then, he or she may order the following procedures to produce an accurate diagnosis:

  • Neurological exam
  • Lumbar puncture
  • Molecular testing
  • Computed tomography (CT) scan
  • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
  • Biopsy

After these diagnostic tests, we assign your brain cancer a grade. The grade helps determine which treatment plans are most appropriate for your case.
