Neurologist 's  Response
Thanks for using Helathcaremagic. Ganglioglioma is a benign tumoral epilepsy. It can cause seizures and if you dont remove completely you will have life long seizures. The medicine you are taking can have effects on your baby. You require regular monitoring from Neurologist. You have to take Folic acid to reduce the defects. Consult epilepsy specialist for further advise.

hi welcome to healthcaremagic
your pregnancy requires monitoring and wont cause u problems related to pregnancy..there will be hormonal secretion which needs to be managed..regarding surgery it depends on the location..sometimes ganglionoma would cause no problems and is better left as it is..
