Our oncology team will apply recent improvements in diagnosis and treatment to evaluating and eradicating your pineal tumor.

Overview

If possible, our cancer surgeons will remove the area of tumor they can safely reach and use the tissue to identity the tumor, which is critical for choosing the correct treatment. Radiation is the most common treatment, though chemotherapy may be added to ensure your best outcome. We also may place a shunt to relieve intracranial pressure from a build-up of cerebrospinal fluid, keeping you more comfortable.
