The posterior fossa is an area at the lower back of your skull, near to the brainstem and cerebellum. These control important functions, such as balance, movement and breathing. As a result, due to the limited space in your posterior fossa, a tumour in this area is a very serious condition. We can treat you using brain surgery. 

Need to know

If you have developed a posterior fossa tumour, you may experience these symptoms:

  • frequent nausea
  • severe headaches
  • fainting
