- Question: I was diagnosed with a grade III Anaplastic Astrocytoma. My neurosurgeon (who is highly respected and has many years of experience) told me that when he took it out, it looked like a low grade glioma. No big deal. It wasn't until after the results of the pathology came in that we found out I had brain cancer. Is it possible that the pathology report was wrong?
Always possible. Ask for a second neuropathology opinion at another major
brain tumor center.
