Medulloblastoma is a rare, fast-growing, malignant tumor that forms when brain cells begin to grow uncontrollably and form a mass. The tumor originates in the cerebellum, which controls movement and coordination. Medulloblastoma is most often found in children. Symptoms include change in appetite, headache, vomiting, drowsiness and coordination problems.
Best in Care
The AdventHealth Neuroscience Institute is a state-of-the art facility for adults and children affected by medulloblastoma. Rare cancers, including medulloblastomas, present unique challenges that our highly skilled neurologists and neurosurgeons address with a broad range of traditional and leading-edge treatments. We offer several minimally invasive surgeries to treat medulloblastomas. These procedures can be essential to removing large tumors, because surgeons are able reach parts of the brain otherwise difficult to access. Eliminating all of the medulloblastoma is essential because of its rapid rate of growth.
