41.0: Cranial and Facial Bones

The skull consists of the cranial and facial bones; the cranial bones protect the brain and contain numerous foramina to convey neurovascular structures between the brain and the rest of the body, whereas the facial bones form the structure of the face. The bones of the skull provide important barriers to, and pathways for, malignant spread of a tumour.
