According to Cancer Australia, astrocytomas develop from a glial cell called an astrocyte. This is a cell that supports the nerve cells in the brain. The terms ‘astrocytoma’ and ‘glioma’ are often used interchangeably.

Astrocytomas/Gliomas are categorised as low or high grade according to how ‘aggressive’ the tumour cells look under a microscope.
