Skull Base

The base of the skull lies behind the eyes and nose. Usually tumors in this area grow inside the skull, however sometimes they do grow outside. Tumors may originate here or be caused by the spread of cancer from another area of the body.

This area is challenging to treat because of the proximity of critical nerves, blood vessels and other structures. Treatment depends of the location and staging of the tumor plus the patient’s overall health.
