In brief: Depends
Treatment really depends on the size of the tumor. For medium sized tumors, for example, a standard treatment is to use brachytherapy (short acting radiation) in the form of an eye plaque.
This type of treatment allows the eye to be spared from being removed (enucleation).

In brief: Choroid plexus
Choroid plexus papilloma (cpp) is a benign type of tumor that can be treated with surgery alone and sometimes repeat surgery or radiation.
Choroid plexus carcinoma (cpc) is a malignant tumor (meaning it can spread and being in the CSF makes that a big problem) that is treated by surgery and then chemotherapy and often radiation. Thus, treatment varies.
