Anaplastic Oligodendroglioma Grade 3
High: Grade iii oligodendoglioma is known to diffusely invade the brain and is not completely removable or curable with surgery. Grade iii is a "high grade" and means that the tumor cells behave more aggresively and grow at faster rates. The rule for this type of tumor is that it will eventually recur. It is impossible to give an exact number, but recurrence within 1-3 years is not uncommon. ...Read more

After chemo and radiation get rid of a OLIGODENDROGLIOMA grade 3 if it recurs, will therapy and chemo make it go away again?
Grade 3 glioma: The response of oligodendroglioma to therapy varies from person to person. If it recurs after treatment, it is possible it will respond to treatment again, even treatment such as chemotherapy and radiation. A super specialist called a neuro-oncologist is best prepared to answer this question however. ...Read more
Yes: Oligodendrogliomas are best treated with surgery. If there is a recurrence, or if the entire tumor cannot be removed, radiation therapy is usually used. Temozolomide is definitely an option for treatment if surgery and radiation have not been completely successful. Certain genetic mutations, if present in the oligodendroglioma, make it more likely that temozolomide will be effective. ...Read more

Oligodendroglioma, how is this tumor monitored and how do neuro oncologist tell if treatment is working, what to do?

Would be better for the general publc to refers as mild/moderate/severe. ...Read more
My mum is 70 and had a grade 3 sah she's 1 week into their clipping is she out of the critical stage?
Serious: Sub arachnoid hemorrhage is a serious condition. I hope and pray she is ok. But no one can predict the future accurately. People with sah do not regain full smell and taste in most cases. And return to level of function prior to the bleed is I think about 50%. You can check that but your mom needs long term followup therapy and care. ...Read more

Fetal movement: If the placenta is 'aging', it may not be providing as much oxygen & nutrients to the baby. It's impossible for you to monitor things like the amniotic fluid index or the baby's weight. I'm sure your doctor is checking on these things.
