Medulloblastoma (grade IV)

Medulloblastomas are brain Tumours that begin in the lower back of the brain. They are formed from abnormal brain cells at a very early stage in development. Medulloblastomas are usually found in children or young adults between the ages of 21 and 40 years. This type of cancer may spread from the brain to the spine through the cerebrospinal fluid.


Treatment of medulloblastomas may include the following:

    1. Surgery plus radiation therapy to the brain and spine.
    2. A clinical trial of surgery and radiation therapy to the brain and spine for Tumours that are more difficult to treat successfully.
    3. A clinical trial of chemotherapy.
