My meningioma is in a risky location. It’s in the middle to median sphenoid wing. I heard that I may experience stroke-like symptoms and/or other problems if surgery becomes necessary. I do not want to have surgery and would like to try alternatives that may halt growth or shrink the tumor. Can you recommend anything other than surgery?

There are many options for the treatment of meningiomas. Depending on its size, location, and proximity to adjacent structures the following options may apply: surgery with or without embolization, radiation treatment or laser ablation. There is also the option to watch it. If it is not symptomatic, there may not be a need for immediate intervention.
