      Regarding Practice Exam 2: why is the answer stroke and not increased ICP? Is it because it is a grade 2 tumor and not grade 3?

      Hi Becky,
      A grade 2 astrocytoma would be relatively slow growing and it was completely resected 5 months ago, so it is unlikely these new symptoms are related to this event. It is more likely that a sudden onset of these neurologic signs is indicative of a stroke, a new event unrelated to his tumor.
      Hope this helps!
      Chrissy
