In brief: No

Astrocytoma more fiffuse and infiltrative--ganglioglioma more circumscribed and enhance early on scans--also likely different brain locations--agree some overlap exist.

In brief: Similar tumor class

They are both subtypes of glial tumors.
However their behavior depends on what grade tumor they are.
