How might pineoblastoma be treated?

Standard treatment for pineoblastoma begins with surgery to remove as much of the tumor as possible.  Surgery is followed by radiation therapy, which aims to destroy any cancer cells that may remain near the original location of the tumor, and chemotherapy, which is designed to kill any cancer cells that may have traveled to other parts of the body.[1]
