Glioma (Brain Tumor) Cells: A Picture Gallery
A glioma is a type of tumor that starts in the brain or spine. The tumor is called glioma because it arises from glial cells and the most common site of gliomas is the brain. Gliomas are among the most aggressive of brain tumors and prognosis of high-grade gliomas is generally poor. Of 10,000 Americans diagnosed each year with malignant gliomas, about half are alive 1 year after diagnosis and 25% after two years.
