Treatment of low-grade brain and spinal cord tumours
Low-grade (grades I and II) brain and spinal cord tumours tend to grow slowly and may cause only a few symptoms.
Treatment of low-grade brain and spinal cord tumours can vary depending on:
- type of tumour
- location of tumour
- size of tumour
- neurological (nervous system) function
- Some types of low-grade tumours are not treated until they grow large enough to change neurological function.
- person's age
A low-grade tumour can often be completely removed by surgery. If not, a combination of treatments may be used.
The types of treatments given are based on the unique needs of the person with cancer.
