Hello.Neurofibromatosis is unfortunately incurable.The tumors are known to grow at variable pace.Even a prolonged treatment wont help to resolve all tumors.Only tumors which are causing symptoms can be surgical removed.Hope that answers your question.Cost of treatment can be extremely variable.Thank you.
