Glioblastoma is an aggressive form of brain cancer that originates in the glial cells, the gluey supportive cells that surround nerve cells and help them function.

Symptoms of glioblastoma may include persistent headaches, double or blurred vision, vomiting, loss of appetite, changes in mood or personality, changes in the ability to think and learn, new onset of seizures, and speech difficulty.

Any type of brain cancer diagnosis can be frightening, but the experts in the GW Cancer Center’s Neuro Oncology Program are highly trained to diagnose and treat brain cancer patients using a comprehensive and compassionate approach.
