Your doctor will devise an individualized treatment plan for you depending on the location and size of the tumour as well as the type of glioma (cell type). Your age, overall health and personal preferences will also be taken into account in addition to the potential benefits and risks of the different treatment options.
Your treatment options may include:
Surgery to remove as much of the tumour as possible. Imaging techniques such as CT scan and functional MRI may be used to aid the surgery. There are high chances of recurrence of the tumour
Radiation therapy in which high-energy X-rays or other radiations are used to kill the cancerous cells
Chemotherapy in which drugs, taken orally or injected, are used to kill the cancerous cells. This is often used in combination with the radiation therapy
