Understanding glioblastoma

Never give up

Mr. Huang was diagnosed with glioblastoma (GBM) in 2018. GBM is considered to be one of the most difficult tumors to treat due to its aggressive growth rate, rapid deterioration of pathogenic symptoms, high recurrence rate, and permanent damage to patient brain function. He has undergone three brain surgeries in more than three years, and in addition to traditional postoperative radiation therapy and chemotherapy, he is being treated with TT fields (tumour treatment fields) each day. Mr. Huang encourages patients to exercise every day, never give up, and live happily with an optimistic and positive attitude.
