What Is Glioblastoma Multiforme?

Winning the battle against a life-threatening disease begins with being armed with essential information.

Glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), a type of aggressive brain cancer, is the most common malignant brain tumor among adults. GBM is a fast-growing glioma that originates from glial cells, which support the health of the nerve cells within the brain. Glioblastoma is often called a grade IV astrocytoma. These are the most invasive type of glial tumors, often spreading into nearby brain tissue.

In adults, glioblastoma multiforme usually starts in the largest part of the brain (cerebrum). These tumors produce their own blood supply, allowing them to proliferate faster.

Glioblastoma Multiforme Symptoms

Depending on where the tumor is, signs of glioblastoma may include:

  • Persistent headaches
  • Seizures
  • Vomiting
  • Loss of appetite
  • Trouble thinking and learning
  • Changes in mood and personality
  • Double or blurred vision
  • Speech difficulty of gradual onset

If you have persistent symptoms, seek immediate medical attention.

Glioblastoma Multiforme Causes

The causes of glioblastoma multiforme are unknown. While research suggests that about 5 percent of all glioblastomas are because of hereditary conditions, the remaining 95 percent are not associated with any specific cause.

The cells in glioblastoma have more genetic abnormalities than the cells of other astrocytoma brain cancers. As a result, medical researchers believe that varying genetic mutations are involved in the development of these aggressive cancers. Such genetic mutations can be the result of the following:

  • Inherited DNA defects
  • Excessive exposure to ionizing radiation
  • High-dose exposure to chemicals and other carcinogens
  • Additional mutation triggers that have yet to be identified

Diagnostic Tests for Glioblastoma Multiforme

Advanced imaging techniques can accurately pinpoint the location of brain tumors. Diagnostic procedures include computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans.

Intraoperative MRI may also be beneficial during surgery to guide tissue biopsies and tumor removal. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) is often a necessary tool for examining the tumor's chemical profile, with a positron emission tomography (PET) scan useful in identifying tumor recurrence.
