  • Symptoms
  • Sphenoid wing meningiomas are diagnosed by the combination of suggestive symptoms from the history and physical and neuroimaging by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or computer averaged tomography (CT). (wikipedia.org)
  • Your care plan may also include treatment for symptoms and side effects, an important part of care for meningioma. (cancer.net)
  • When symptoms do develop they may vary depending on the location and size of the meningioma and include headaches, vision changes and difficulty hearing. (wisegeek.com)
  • As a result, patients who are diagnosed with meningioma often undergo treatment to shrink their tumor, alleviate symptoms and restore as much brain function as possible. (moffitt.org)
  • incidence
  • Atomic bomb survivors from Hiroshima had a higher than typical frequency of developing meningiomas, with the incidence increasing the closer that they were to the site of the explosion. (wikipedia.org)
  • Meningiomas have an incidence of ~4.18/100,000 persons each year. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgeries

  • Screening
  • Meningioma screening tests, such as CT scans and MRIs, may be recommended for people who have an elevated risk of developing this type of brain cancer. (moffitt.org)
