Skull-based tumors are not a single type of brain tumor. Their location defines the type: whether within the bones of the skull that form the bottom of the head, or the bones behind the nose and eyes. Most skull base tumors grow inside of the skull, but some form on the outside.
Treating skull base tumors and conditions requires the skill and experience of a center like Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center. These tumors are very close to nerves and blood vessels in the brain, head, neck and spinal cord.
