Glioma & Astrocytoma

Gliomas and astrocytomas are tumors that develop in the brain and nervous system, which includes the spinal cord. Gliomas originate from glial cells, the supportive tissue of the brain. Glial cells surround the brain’s nerve cells, or neurons, which are responsible for thought, sensation, coordination, and muscle control. Astrocytoma is the most common form of glioma.
