Certain factors affect prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options.

 

The prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options depend on:

  • Whether cancer cells remain after surgery
  • The type of ependymoma and whether it begins in the brain or in the spinal cord.
  • The age of the child when the tumor is diagnosed
  • Whether the cancer has spread to other parts of the central nervous system, such as the meninges (membranes covering the brain) and the spinal cord.
  • Whether the cancer has spread to other parts of the body, such as the bone or lung.
  • Whether the tumor has just been diagnosed or has recurred (come back).
