Ear, nose and throat (ENT) professionals deal with a variety of potential issues. One such issue is skull base tumor, which typically forms in groups along areas under the brain or in the bottom area of the skull. Most tumors are benign but can still cause issues due to close proximity to the brain and nerves. These tumors can include glomus tumors, schwannomas, chondrosarcomas, and other head and neck cancers that spread to the skull’s base.
Another potential issue is petrous apex tumors or lesions. This area of the skull is difficult to reach, making skilled care necessary. You should contact an ENT doctor if you experience any symptoms or noticeable changes in your ear, nose, throat, or head area.
