Learning About Skull Base Tumors

The skull base consists of the bones and cartilage that form the face and the cranium, which surrounds the bottom of the brain. When tumors develop in this area they can cause a host of different symptoms, including headaches, changes in vision, hormonal imbalances and hearing loss, among others. Actual symptoms will vary depending upon whether the tumor is located in the anterior, middle or posterior cranial fossa section of the skull base.
