Yes: Often these are pilocytic astrocytomas, especially in young people. And they are prone to recurrence. Hemangioblastomas are less likely to be back, but can arise multifocally. I wish you the best.

Sure: Depends on the disease. Any cancer can recur after agressive treatment. Certainly high grade brain tumors are much more likely to recur than low grade cancers.
