Treatment of high-grade brain and spinal cord tumours

High-grade (grades III and IV) brain and spinal cord tumours tend to grow quickly, which leads to early symptoms that need to be treated right away.

Treatment of high-grade brain and spinal cord tumours can vary depending on:

  • type of tumour
  • location of tumour
  • size of tumour
  • neurological (nervous system) function
  • person's age

The types of treatments given are based on the unique needs of the person with cancer.
