Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) is a malignant glioma (Grade IV) that has the potential to grow quickly and infiltrate the brain.
GBM’s are the most invasive type of glial tumors. In adults, GBM occurs most often in the cerebral hemispheres, or the supportive tissues of the brain. Because of the aggressiveness of these tumors it is important to seek treatment immediately. These tumors have a high mortality rate if not addressed quickly.
Pressure on the brain usually causes the first symptoms of a glioblastoma multiforme since they grow so quickly. There are a variety of symptoms depending on the location of the tumor.
