My father just passed away after a 9 month battle with a GBM. I don't have any evidence to back this, but his doctor told me that it is not genetic. I hope it isn't. Good luck!

Is glioblastoma genetic?

Yes it is genetic. however just because one of your ancestors died from it does not mean you'll ever get the tumor. It just means you're more likely to get it. On the other hand just because none of your ancestors got it does not mean you can't get it. very litle is known about the causes of this disease but the chances of you getting it are 3 in 100,000.
