Surgery is a primary treatment option for many meningiomas whether the tumor is slow-growing or more aggressive.
Sometimes, meningiomas are in areas of the brain that prevent surgeons from removing the tumors fully. Removing even some of the tumor can reduce symptoms and allow you to move forward with other types of treatment.
