Survival outcomes for adult patients with tumours of the brain and other areas of the central nervous system (CNS) are dependent on tumour type, grade, age at diagnosis, and the patient's performance status.
The most common type of brain/CNS tumours referred to The Christie are grade IV gliomas (GBM). 28% of patients with GBM survive at least one year following diagnosis.
