What Patients Say About Cancer Treatment at New Hope

Alternative Cancer Treatment Testimonial from Cindy

What is Oligodendroglioma?

Unlocking the possibility of brain tumor remission starts with knowing vital information about the disease.

Oligodendroglioma is a cancerous tumor that occurs in the brain or spinal cord. It forms from oligodendrocytes or oligodendroglia — cells in the brain and spinal cord whose main functions include providing support and insulation to axons in the central nervous system.

Oligodendroglioma accounts for 2-5 percent of all primary brain tumors, as well as 5-18 percent of gliomas. This malignant tumor is most common in adults aged 40 to 60.

Oligodendrogliomas We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

The types of oligodendrogliomas are divided into two grades:

Grade II Oligodendrogliomas

These are low-grade tumors. The cells in grade 2 oligodendrogliomas tend to grow slowly and can invade surrounding normal tissue.

Grade III Anaplastic Oligodendrogliomas

Grade 3 oligodendrogliomas are fast-growing tumors. They are slightly more common among men than women.

What are the Symptoms of Oligodendroglioma?

The signs and symptoms of a patient with oligodendroglioma vary depending on the size of a tumor and which part of the brain it develops.

When the tumor occurs in the frontal lobe, symptoms often include:

  • Headaches
  • Seizures
  • Paralysis
  • Memory loss
  • Vision impairment
  • Changes in behavior or personality

When the tumor grows in the parietal lobe, symptoms often include:

  • Problems with balance and coordination
  • Difficulty focusing
  • Difficulty reading, writing, and calculating
  • Difficulty recognizing and interpreting sensations
  • Changes to the sense of touch, such as the inability to recognize objects through touch

When the tumor arises in the temporal lobe, symptoms often include:

  • Hearing impairment
  • Memory loss
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Inability to comprehend language and music

If you have persistent signs of oligodendroglioma, see your doctor immediately.

What are the Causes?

There are currently no known causes of oligodendroglioma. However, a 2010 study identified potential risk factors for oligodendroglial tumors:

  • A family history of brain tumors
  • Having had chickenpox

If you have risk factors, discuss prevention with your physician.

Diagnostic Tests for Oligodendroglioma

Early diagnosis is key to improving your oligodendroglioma prognosis and life expectancy. A doctor may recommend the following procedures to detect tumors in the brain or spinal cord:

  • Medical history and physical exam
  • Neurological exam
  • Imaging tests, such as:
    • Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan
    • Computed tomography (CT or CAT) scan
    • Integrated positron emission tomography (PET)-CT scan
  • Removing a sample of tissue for testing (biopsy)
