Meningiomas

July 31st, 2012 | Posted by admin in Benign Tumor Types

Meningiomas are tumors of the meninges or coverings of the brain. The majority are benign. Acoustic neuromas and pituitary tumors are other common benign tumors. They may be treated with surgical removal, radiation or stereotactic radiosurgery using gamma knife technology. The type of treatment depends upon the size and location of the tumor, surrounding critical structures, and the patient’s general health and well-being.
