A 38-year-old member asked:
when getting a brain cyst removed, do doctors shave all of your head or just the part where surgery is done?

Response: The surgical approach will vary based upon the location of the cyst, and the extent of either mass effect or symptomatic expression. Typically, shaving the hair is just a minimal aspect of the procedure, and usually only involves the localized site of access.
