Astrocytomas



Astrocytomas are tumors that begin in a brain cell called an “astrocyte.” These cells help give your brain its structure. An astrocytoma can form in your brain, in your brain stem, or in your spinal cord. There are many types of cancerous and non-cancerous astrocytomas, and can grow slowly or quickly.
