GBM: Where to find more detailed (survival) stats?
Everybody I’ve met who’s had a brain tumor wants to know the stats: what are my odds? How long will I live? What if I eat lots of chia seeds? I’m a stage III GBM, what are those odds?
There’s a great discussion of all this on the Inspire website right now: http://www.inspire.com/groups/american-brain-tumor-association/discussion/gbm-where-to-find-more-detailed-stats/?ref=as&asat=183201391
The discussion thread was started with the following questions: “I've read all the general stats for a grade IV GBM, but where can I find more detailed information? For instance, how does the survival rate differ for operable vs. inoperable tumors? How does it differ by age group? Is there a site or source that gives details such as these?”
