Hi there I understand your concern and anxiety....No current treatment is curative. Standard treatment consists of the Maximal surgical resection, radiotherapy, and concomitant and adjuvant chemotherapy with temozolomide...Radiation therapy in addition to surgery or surgery combined with chemotherapy has been shown to prolong survival in patients with glioblastoma compared to surgery alone...Consult nearest oncologist they will guide you further.
