Your treatment will depend on the type of tumor you have, as well as its size and location. Doctors often use surgery to remove papilloma (Grade I) and atypical papilloma (Grade II) tumors.
Minimally invasive surgery for choroid plexus tumors, using a port, involves making a precise, individual plan before surgery that may include the use of brain mapping
technology. This is a minimally invasive procedure to access the tumor through a dime-sized narrow channel, or port.
We’ll work with you to develop a plan that ensures you the best possible outcome. Surgery might be the only treatment you’ll need. Or, your doctors might recommend a combination approach, including:
- Chemotherapy: This approach uses cancer-fighting drugs to stop the growth of tumors.
- CyberKnife® radiosurgery: A non-invasive, robotic system delivers high-dose radiation therapy to tumors with pinpoint accuracy. Cyberknife is a form of stereotactic radiosurgery.
- Neurosurgery: This is the most common treatment for choroid plexus papillomas. If the tumor recurs, you may need follow-up surgery to remove it.
- Radiation therapy: This process destroys cancer cells and prevents others from growing.
