40% of all cancers spread to the brain

    Oligodendroglioma is a type of glioma and develops from cells called oligodendrocytes.

    These cells produce the fatty covering of nerve cells. This type of tumour is normally found in the cerebrum, particularly in the frontal or temporal lobes.

    Oligodendrogliomas can be one of two types:- a well-differentiated tumour, which grows slowly, or an anaplastic oligodendroglioma, which grows more quickly.

    Although this type of tumour is more common in adults, it can occur in children. For unknown reasons, it is more common in men than in women.
