This site is to increase the awareness about Head & Neck Cancer Surgery as well as Skull Base Surgery among the medical community and the general public. Cancer affecting different areas of Head & Neck and skull base are described briefly with case reports. The causes, early symptoms of these tumors as well as how they are diagnosed and treated are described.

Skullbase surgery is one of the most exciting and challenging innovations in modern surgery. Lesions involving skull base are rarely limited to areas that are assigned to a single speciality. These tumours, especially malignancies, which were often considered inoperable are being removed currently by using these techniques.
