Medulloblastoma

Medulloblastoma Symptoms and Causes

Medulloblastomas are found near the midline of the cerebellum. The tumor is rapidly growing and often blocks drainage of the cerebrospinal fluid, causing symptoms associated with increased intracranial pressure. Medulloblastoma cells can spread to other areas of the central nervous system, especially around the spinal cord.
