Is it something new for 14 years old kid?

Hi ginette55, did your grandson get the diagnosis of infiltrative astrocytoma?
Here's more information https://rarediseases.org/rare-diseases/astrocytoma/

Do you know the grade of his astrocytoma? What treatments has he had?

REPLY

NO.it is a recurrence after 6 years.

His first cancer was a medulloblastoma for which he did 6 weeks of radiation and 18 months of chemo. This time, he was only able to do 2 weeks of radiation before hitting his lifetime cap, so that's all he's been able to do.
