Understanding Glioblastoma

COLLEGE STATION, Texas - About 24 hours ago we learned that Senator John McCain has Glioblastoma, news everyone hopes to never hear.

It's a tumor that grows very quickly, some symptoms include headaches, nausea, and even personality changes. 

It's a rare brain tumor type with extensive treatment. We reached out to a local oncologist to see if we have had any one receive treatment at the new Baylor Scott and White Cancer Center.

This cancer is rare, but the oncologist told us that they have treated patients but fortunately, not that many.

"It's a rare and aggressive tumor type, and we don't seer rare things in high prevalence," Dr. Yeh said.
 
According to McCain's doctors, he will go under treatment soon and that treatment can take up to 14 months.
