James Battiste, an oncologist with Stephenson Cancer Center in Oklahoma City, Okla., says patients with glioblastoma will likely have a lot of questions about the diagnosis.
"First thing is don't be bashful about asking questions. Ask your oncologist as many things as possible," he says.
It is a difficult cancer to treat, but there have been advances, he says. Battiste encourages patients to seek out clinical trials and new information about the brain cancer because of the rapidly advancing field.
