Craniopharyngioma is a type of brain tumor derived from embryonic tissue within the pituitary gland. This tumor is usually slow growing but behaves aggressively as it affects surrounding structures. These benign tumors occur most often in children but are also common in adults in their 50’s and 60’s

Those with Craniopharyngioma may experience signs and symptoms such as:

● Headaches
● Nausea / vomitting
● Dizziness
● Difficulty balancing
● Increased fatigue
● Mood swings
● Visual impairment
● Excessive thirst
● Increased urination
