What is a skull base osteoma?
Osteomas are benign bony outgrowths (new bone growth) mostly found on the skull and facial bones. If the bone tumor grows on another bone, it is called homoplastic osteoma. If it grows on tissue, it is called eteroplastic osteoma.
Symptoms of a skull base osteoma:
Skull base osteomas are slow growing and generally cause no symptoms. However, large osteomas in some locations may cause problems with breathing, vision or hearing.
