Glioma family of tumours (i.e. they grow from glial cells) account for 44.4% of all brain tumours, with Glioblastoma being the most common type of Glioma at 51.9% of all Gliomas. These usually occur in the cerebral hemisphere, but may also strike other areas such as the optic nerve, the brain stem and the cerebellum. Gliomas are classified into several groups because there are different types of glial cells.
