Acoustic neuroma

Many people are terrified when they first hear that they have a growing tumor in their head. An Acoustic neuroma is noncancerous (benign) and generally slow growing. As well identified as vestibular schwannoma, the Acoustic neuroma is one of the most frequent types of brain tumors. In case of an Acoustic neuroma hearing loss can occur, that is caused by the tumor pushing on the nerve. Luckily, Acoustic neuromas do not attack brain tissue such as cancer. Sometimes an Acoustic neuroma stays so small that it never causes problems. Optional treatment methods in case of an Acoustic neuroma are the following: regular monitoring, radiation and surgical intervention.
