What is the prognosis of Childhood Craniopharyngiomas?
Certain factors affect prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options.
The prognosis (chance of recovery) and treatment options depend on the following:
- The size of the tumor
- Where the tumor is in the brain
- Whether the tumor is solid or a fluid-filled cyst
- Whether there are tumor cells left after surgery
- The child's age
- Whether the tumor has just been diagnosed or has recurred (come back).
