Understanding newly diagnosed, first recurrent, and recurrent in GBM
Newly Diagnosed GBM
Signifies the initial diagnosis of glioblastoma multiforme. It occurs when a patient experiences symptoms like headaches, seizures, vision problems, and seeks medical attention. During a routine check-up or through MRI and CT scans, a sizable brain mass or tumor is detected. Subsequent medical tests confirm the diagnosis of GBM.
As its name suggests, indicates the return of the cancerous tumor. This recurrence becomes apparent through a follow-up set of MRI or CT scans. Recurrent GBM implies that, despite previous interventions such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation, the tumor has proven resilient and reappeared in the same area of the brain.
First Recurrent GBM
Specifies that after the initial diagnosis and the treatments administered to eliminate cancer cells, this marks the first instance of recurrence or reappearance.
This PRO rGBM survey is only for patients with first recurrent GBM.
Now offering evening availability! To better accommodate working participants and those in different time zones, our Clinical Research Coordinator/Patient Navigator is now available two evenings a week to conduct rGBM Study interviews: Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 6PM to 9PM PST.
