Skullbase Tumors

Skull base tumors are rare tumors that develop in the area at the base of the skull. They can be benign or malignant, and can affect various structures including the brain, cranial nerves, and blood vessels. Some of the most common types include meningiomas, pituitary adenomas, schwannomas, chordomas, and craniopharyngiomas.

Symptoms depend on the location and size of the tumor but may include headaches, visual disturbances, and difficulty swallowing. Treatment options vary based on the type and location of the tumor, but may include surgery, radiation therapy, and chemotherapy. A multidisciplinary team of specialists is often involved in managing skull base tumors.
