  • Question: I have an oligodendroglioma grade II malignant brain tumor. It was discovered on October 14th 2011, and I had an awake craniotomy on November 3rd. I want to find out if I can get help to get rid of my tumour. As it is a slow grower, I have not had any treatment after my surgery. I want to find out as much as possible; the information in the UK is rubbish. I hope you can advise me.

    The biopsy should be sent out to 1-2 major brain tumor centers in the UK. Then you need to be in the hands of a very experienced neurooncologist. Where are you located in UK?
