Treatment for cerebellar tumor

Treatment is based on location, symptoms, the origin of the tumor, and prior treatment. Sometimes a symptomatic cerebellar tumor is treated by surgically removing the tumor. Sometimes radiation or chemotherapy is used. Sometimes a "shunt" needs to be placed to allow fluid to flow around the brain and spinal cord.
