There are several tumor types in this category. Names of specific PNETs may be based on the tumor location. Examples include pineoblastoma (located in the pineal region, a form of pineal tumor), medulloblastoma (located in the cerebellum), and cerebral cortex PNET (located in the cerebral cortex).
Surgery is the standard treatment when possible. In adults and children over three years of age, surgery may be followed by radiation therapy to the whole brain and spinal cord, and chemotherapy. In children under three years of age, surgery may be followed by chemotherapy or a clinical trial of chemotherapy to delay or reduce the need for radiation therapy.
Please speak with your health care provider for more information about your tumor type, biomarkers, and treatment options, including clinical trials.
