What treatments are available for anaplastic oligoastrocytoma?

Treatment of anaplastic oligoastrocytoma depends on the size and location of the tumor.  If possible, treatment begins with surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible.  Chemotherapy or radiation therapy may be needed following surgery to destroy any remaining cancer cells.[1]
