Posterior fossa tumour

Brain tumour

Posterior fossa tumours can be a life-threatening brain condition — our HCA UK neurosurgeons can diagnose and treat you

About

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.
