What Is Cranial Base Disorders?
The cranial base is a small, yet highly complex area at the bottom portion of the skull where every nerve that connects the brain with the rest of the body must move through. If you have a cranial base disorder, you may experience neurological problems such as headaches, facial pain, blurred vision, dizziness, or seizures. These symptoms tend to occur when the tumor has grown large enough to press against nerves or the brain.
