What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Glioma?

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

Gliomas are brain tumors starting in the supportive cells of the brain and spinal cord. These cells, otherwise known as glial cells, surround nerve cells (neurons) and provide support and insulation between them. If you have a glioma brain tumor, your symptoms, prognosis, and treatment will depend on your age, specific type of tumor, and the location of the tumor in the brain and spinal cord.

Gliomas We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The three main types of glioma are:

Ependymomas

These growths make up less than 2 percent of all brain tumors. Ependymomas come from the ependymal cells and rarely spread outside the brain. However, they do have a high risk of local recurrence and, therefore, considered malignant (cancerous).

Astrocytomas

These cancerous tumors originate in star-shaped brain cells called astrocytes. Grade 1 astrocytomas grow the slowest, while grade 4 tumors are the fastest growing. In most cases, astrocytomas do not spread outside the brain and spinal cord.

Oligodendrogliomas

These brain tumors spread in a similar manner to astrocytomas. Some oligodendrogliomas may grow slowly, but they can still metastasize (spread) and invade nearby tissue.

Glioma Symptoms in Men and Women

The following are signs of glioma, which vary by tumor type, size, location, and rate of growth:

  • Recurrent headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Increased irritability or other personality changes
  • Confusion, memory loss, or a decline in brain function
  • Problems with balance
  • Difficulties with speech
  • Changes in vision
  • Urinary incontinence
  • Sudden seizures

If you have persistent symptoms, do not hesitate to see your doctor immediately.

Glioma Risk Factors

Exposure to ionizing radiation and having a family history of glioma are well-known risk factors for glioma. However, the absence of risk factors cannot guarantee your immunity to glioma, and the disease will not always develop if you have risk factors.

Diagnostic Tests for Glioma

Early diagnosis is key to improving your glioma prognosis and life expectancy. Your doctor may recommend the following procedures to find a glioma brain tumor:

  • Medical history and physical exam
  • Neurological exam
  • Imaging tests, such as:
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
    • Computerized tomography (CT) scan
    • Positron emission tomography (PET) scan
  • Collecting and testing a sample of abnormal tissue (biopsy)
