Craniopharyngiomas are typically treated with brain surgery, which can be done either through your nose using a small scope, or through an opening in your head called a craniotomy. The goal of surgery is to remove as much of the tumor as possible while minimizing damage to your pituitary gland, hypothalamus or optic nerves. Even so, some people might need to take hormonal medications afterward. In addition, post-surgery radiation therapy may be recommended, especially if the entire tumor couldn’t be safely removed.
