My husband, age 55 has this type tumor. It is very rare and usually found in children.

I just had my ganglioglioma removed from my cerebellum. My emergency surgery was on 10/23/13. I'm 49 yr old woman. Lost my hair in surgery

Did they have to shave your head for the surgery?  Is that why you lost your hair?  I'm sorry to hear about what you are going through.  How is the recovery process going for you?

Yes they shaved it off. It is growing out now. Scar is itchy a lot. Above the scar it is pins and needles or numb.
