Adult pilocytic astrocytomas are rare creatures. Over 24 years ago I had surgery at Mayo Clinic to remove one. I was 29 years old at the time. The tumor has never come back, but I started having grand mal seizures (again) about three years ago. Mayo Clinic has a great team of doctors. Read about these types tumors on the internet, write down questions and work with the doctors there until you’re satisfied with their answers. You are the one in control.

Your story gives me hope! I’m 36 and just had surgery to remove a pilocytic astrocytoma from my temporal lobe Dec 30th. They were able to remove the entire tumor thanks to the good Lord. Now I’m just dealing with extreme anxiety… I pray it never comes back. Thank you for sharing your story. If you have any pointers on how to deal with my anxiety I would love to hear them.
