Surgery for a benign neoplasm of cerebral meninges is a common treatment option. This procedure is typically performed with endoscopic techniques rather than open surgery. This surgical procedure removes (resects) the tumor. Indications for surgery include the presence of symptoms, radiographic evidence of tumor growth, or a large tumor that is compromising function of a vital structure. Most benign tumors can be completely resected or reduced in size by removing part of the tumor.
