In brief: Location

It depends on the location of the tumor. If the tumor is close to memory centers then amnesia might happen, otherwise, if tumor is located in the motor center or sensory center of the brain then brain surgery might affect motion, sensation, speech etc based on the area affected.
Always consult with neurosurgeon.
