A member asked:

Is it true that brainstem glioma is a curable brain tumor?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Depends: Some gliomas in the stem are focal and low grade, and may be located in places where they can be operated upon successfully and safely. However "brainstem glioma" is most often used to describe diffuse infiltrating pontine gliomas, which are high grade and almost always fatal. These are most commonly seen in children.
