Brain Tumors
A brain tumor diagnosis is scary and can lead to fear, anxiety, and many, many questions. We want to let you know – we understand your concerns and we will do our very best to make sure that your questions are answered.

First off, it’s important to recognize that not all brain tumors are malignant. Brain tumors can also be benign but still need to be removed because of their location. It’s important to determine what kind of brain tumor you have, whether or not it is cancerous, and where it’s located.

The neurosurgeons at Palm Beach Neurology have performed many successful surgeries to remove brain tumors in patients just like you from Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, and other nearby locales. We will discuss your diagnosis with you to help you better understand your condition and let you know what treatment options are available.
Surgery on the Pituitary
Your pituitary gland is often referred to as the “master gland” since it produces the hormones that control other glands in your body such as your adrenal glands and your thyroid. It’s located just behind the bridge of your nose, below your brain and near your optic nerves.

The pituitary gland can develop tumors, which can cause either too much or too little hormone production, which in turn affects your entire endocrine system. Surgery is one of the treatment options for pituitary gland tumors. Because of the location of the pituitary gland, you’ll want experienced and skilled neurosurgeons performing this treatment.
Skull Base and Cerebrovascular Legions
The skull base is an incredibly complex area. Many crucial nerves and vascular structures are located here, and many of these play a vital role in helping to control your senses. For instance, your cranial nerves, which control your sight, eye movement, hearing, sense of balance, voice, sense of smell, and more, are housed in the skull base. The major source of blood to your brain passes right through your skull base, as well.

When lesions occur in this issue, they can create serious neurological issues. Some types of lesions require surgery to treat, such as certain vascular conditions and tumors.

Because the skull base is so complex and houses so many important structures, it’s important to choose neurosurgeons with extensive experience treating these problems. The neurosurgeons at Palm Beach Neurosurgery, which serves West Palm Beach, Boynton Beach, Delray Beach, and other local areas, have the experience and expertise you can trust to treat skull base and cerebrovascular lesions.
