Treatments for Skull Base Tumors

Treating a skull base tumor is similar to other brain tumors, even though it's location is distinctly different than those within the brain. The best plan of attack depends on the size, location and type. Skull base tumors can be difficult to treat because they are deep in the brain. Luckily, Spectrum Health has talented doctors who perform breakthrough, minimally-invasive techniques and new surgeries. 

Your care team may take a combination approach, using more than one form of treatment. Some tumors only require watching, because they’re noncancerous. For others, surgery alone will do the trick. Read more about treatment options below, and let's work together to make you well.
