Acoustic Neuroma

Also known as vestibular schwannoma, Acoustic neuroma is usually a noncancerous tumor that grows slowly. The tumor develops on the main nerve leading from the inner ear to the brain. This nerve can affect balance and hearing and can even lead to hearing loss, ringing in the ear, and unbalance.

With regular monitoring, radiation, and surgery to remove the tumor, it can be treated.

What is the Best Treatment for Acoustic Neuroma?

Treatment options for acoustic neuroma includes surgery and radiosurgery. Radiosurgery is a non-invasive treatment using precise, narrow beams of radiation to treat the acoustic neuroma and reduce the radiation dose delivered to the surrounding tissue including the facial, balance, and hearing nerves. The type of treatment suggested will depend on the patient’s age, the size of the acoustic neuroma, along with other factors.
