  • Question: My father (78 years old, no other history of illness and no other cancer) has been given a preliminary diagnosis of GBM. The tumor is in the temporal lobe and the size of a grape. There is no neuro-oncologist at this hospital. Should we go through with removal and then seek a second opinion once we have a diagnosis based on a tissue sample? My father seems convinced that there are no treatment options that could be effective considering the size of the tumour.

    Have a surgery evaluation done at a major brain tumor center that will have an experienced neurosurgeon and a brain tumor team to offer options. See or ( Book 1 Chapter 7) for a list of those major centers in USA, Canada and worldwide.
