Patient discussion about necrose

Q. can necrosis in a brain tumor kill you? If so, how? husband has glioblastoma.Tumor seems under control at this point as much as they can tell but sounds like there is a lot of necrosis. He has lots of tumor progression symptoms but since he has had the tumor for so long == 6 years = I guess the necrosis is there moreso than the actual tumor == how dangerous can this be?

A. Tumors and not only in the brain tend to develop necrosis the longer they exist because the tumor cells divide so rapidly so the blood supply can't keep up with its' own cells demands, so some cells within the tumor die (therefore are seen as necrotic). This does not usually predict prognosis, but only means that the tumor is longstanding.
