Comment from: uzair, 3-6 Male (Caregiver) Published: September 22

My son 4 years old has brain tumor. The tumor appeared in the frontal lobe and after surgery was investigated and diagnosed as oligodendroglioma grade II. Two months after surgery it appeared again and damaged sight in both eyes of my son. He has been treated by our oncologist who has started radiation, and 33 radiation treatments were given to my son. After radiation he is having to face another problem, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). For the problem of CSF a shunt was inserted in the brain. After 3 months of continuous treatment the condition of my son was not going better but suddenly going down. And after 10 days he died. Before his death he had MRI again and doctors said that tumor had appeared in 4 different places in the brain and in chest so they could not treat it in this condition.
