What is glioblastoma?
A glioblastoma is the most common and most aggressive cancerous tumour that starts in the brain.
These tumours are made up of different cell types.
Glioblastomas are usually highly cancerous because the cells reproduce quickly and have a large network of blood vessels supporting them.
Like many brain tumour types, the exact cause of glioblastoma is not known.
