What Is Skull Base Tumor?

Fighting cancer starts with being armed with essential information about the disease.

Tumors of the skull grow inside the framework of bone or cartilage enclosing the brain (skull), but some develop on the outside. Tumors may originate in the area behind the eyes and nose that slides down to the back of the head (skull base). They can also spread to the skull from cancer elsewhere in the body (metastasize).

For medical practitioners who do not specialize in this disease, treating skull base tumors is challenging because of their proximity to critical nerves and blood vessels in the brain, spinal cord, head, and neck. Early diagnosis and apt treatment are important factors in improving skull cancer prognosis and life expectancy.

Skull Base Tumors We Treat at New Hope Unlimited

Location and cell type determine the group in which a skull base tumor belongs. The malignant types of skull base tumors include:

  • Carcinoid
  • Carcinomas
  • Esthesioblastoma
  • Mucosal melanoma
  • Sarcomas

The majority of skull base tumors are benign (noncancerous) and do not spread to other parts of the body. However, without treatment, they can grow large and can cause life-threatening complications. The benign types of skull base tumors are:

  • Acoustic neuroma
  • Glomus tumors
  • Meningioma
  • Neuroma
  • Pituitary adenoma

Skull Base Tumor Symptoms in Men and Women

Signs of skull base tumors vary from person to person, which may include:

  • Weakness, numbness, or pain in the face
  • Sinus problems, including a frequent clogged nose and loss of smell
  • Vision loss or double vision
  • Loss or blockage of hearing
  • Ringing in the ears (tinnitus)
  • Recurrent headaches
  • Shortness of breath
  • Unexplained hoarseness of voice
  • Difficulty swallowing and frequent choking

Having one or more of these symptoms do not always signal tumors in the skull. Speak with your healthcare provider to receive an accurate diagnosis.

Diagnostic Tests for Skull Base Tumors

Diagnosing skull base tumors begin with your doctor asking questions about your symptoms, health, and family medical history. If he or she suspects a tumorous growth in the skull, one or more of the following tests may detect growths and if they have spread.

  • Biopsy, which may include fine-needle aspiration (FNA)
  • Hearing tests
  • Eye examination
  • Barium swallow
  • Videostroboscopy
  • Angiography

In addition, your doctor may use medical imaging techniques to reveal signs of disease. These tests include computed axial tomography (CT) scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, and positron emission tomography (PET) scans.
