Removal of tumours
Tumours (benign or malignant) can be surgically removed and following examination of the tumour during your diagnosis, we may be able to safely remove it with surgery. We also perform pituitary surgery to specifically remove tumours on or near the pituitary gland. The procedure could be followed by a course of chemotherapy or radiotherapy as part of your cancer treatment by our Neuro-oncology team.
