How might a hemangioblastoma be treated?

Surgery is considered the standard treatment for hemangioblastoma and usually cures this condition.[1] Following surgery, individuals who have had a hemangioblastoma should continue to visit their physician regularly for physical examinations and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the brain.[1][2] These suggested guidelines for follow-up after hemangioblastoma do not state how frequently physician visits or MRIs should be.
