Oligodendrogliomas are typically slow-growing, but we will develop your personalized treatment plan based on the type of tumor we discover through a biopsy.

Oligodendroglioma

These tumors are often found in the cerebrum where they develop from the oligodendrocytes responsible for making myelin, a substance that surrounds the nerves. Oligodendrogliomas may cause symptoms such as seizures, headaches, sleepiness, weakness and/or changes in behavior. These tumors tend to be more responsive to treatments.
