How is angiofibroma treated?

Your child's doctor will discuss treatment methods with you, but treatment usually consists of surgical removal of the tumor. In cases where the tumor has extended into the cranium, radiation therapy may be used.

What's the long-term outlook for my child?

Prognosis can vary greatly from child to child.

  • Some tumors may disappear on their own, while others will continue to grow.
  • It's not uncommon for the tumor to return after it's been surgically removed.
  • Prompt medical attention and aggressive therapy are important for the best prognosis and timely treatment.
