Glioma is a type of tumor that occurs in the brain or spinal cord of a child. This disease is one of the most common types of primary brain tumors. The child's nerve cells are surrounded by viscous supporting cells that ensure their normal functioning (glial), and it is in them that the formation of tumors in children begins. Gliomas can be of different types, depending on the type of glial cells:
- astrocytoma, anaplastic astrocytoma, and glioblastoma;
Regardless of the type of tumor, glioma is a dangerous disease that leads to dysfunction of the child's brain. The course of the disease depends on the size and location of the tumor.
