Glioma: A Common Type of Brain Tumor That can be Fatal

  • Glioma is a common type of tumor originating in the brain, which is formed in glial cells. Glial cells are cells in the brain, which surround and support neurons in the brain including astrocytes, oligodendrocytes, and ependymal cells.
  • Glioma can affect functioning of the brain and it can be fatal, depending on its location and severity of tumor
  • Glioma is of different types: astrocytomas, brain stem gliomas, ependymomas, mixed gliomas (oligo-astrocytomas), oligodendrogliomas, and optic pathway gliomas
  • Headache; seizures; numbness; weakness in the arms, the face, or the legs; and personality changes are some of the major symptoms observed in patients with glioma
  • Risk factors for the development of glioma range from old age (more common in adults between 45-65 years of age) and radiation exposure to family history of glioma
  • Various diagnostic methods are available for detection of glioma. Depending on severity of the disease, different types of treatments or therapies are suggested to patients
