Independent advice on private healthcare
Acoustic neuroma (also known as vestibular schwannoma) is usually a slow growing, benign (noncancerous) tumour which arises from the nerve sheath of the main nerve conveying sensation from the inner ear to the brain (the vestibulocochlear nerve). As the tumour presses on the nerve it can cause hearing loss, ringing in the ear and balance problems. Usually, this is diagnosed by an MRI scan and treatment options include radiation and surgery with regular follow-ups
