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.

Cancer affects all Canadians
Nearly 1 in 2 Canadians is expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.
