Once the doctor analyzes the symptoms and clinical history, they will perform a physical examination of the child and request a series of tests to confirm the diagnosis, such as a neurological examination, MRI, CT scan, lumbar puncture, and tissue biopsy.
The treatment to be followed will depend on the type of tumor, age, location, grade, and extension. Surgery or one of the following therapeutic options may be performed to remove the tumor:
- Radiation therapy.
- Stereotactic radiosurgery.
- Proton beam therapy.
- Targeted therapy.
