Because of the anatomical location of the orbits in the direct proximity to the nasal sinuses and the malar bones, it lends itself to have tumors like this removed by a specially trained otorhinolaryngologic surgeon.
The most careful approach with the best possible efficiency is selected, depending on the tumor's location. Most tumors can be removed without opening the neurocranium, often via a gentle lateral approach. Occasionally, orbital tumors can be removed through the nose (endonasal microsurgery and / or endoscopic surgery).
Intensive medical care is usually not necessary. The inpatient stay is normally only a few days.
Tumors which cannot be reached via an otorhinolaryngologic surgical access or which grow into the neurocranium are gently removed with neurosurgery.
