Like real estate: It depends on location. Indeed certain locations are too fluent to attempt resection. Complete resection is not always possibble. The swelling depends on resection and residual, and it may cause symptoms, rehabilitation of the loss (motor weakness, speech, etc) may recover or be permanent.
