Unspecified glioma

Unspecified glioma are tumours where it is not possible to tell which type of cell they contain, or they contain more than one type of cell (astrocytes, ependymal cells and oligodendrocytes).

You will be given treatment for the highest grade of cell type within the tumour.

These types of glioma together account for around 6% of brain tumours. They are sometimes called 'mixed glioma'.
