Thanks for posting your query.

Permanent cure goes based on the cause.

Calcific granuloma would need to be excised for permanent cure.

You need to discuss it with neurosurgeon, since surgical opinion would be considered based on the accessible site, size and seizure frequency.

Hope I have answered your query.

Wishing you good health.
