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.

Acute lymphocytic leukemia

Acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) is a form of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. The formulation "acute" in acute lymphocytic leukemia originates from the fact that the illness progresses fast and affects immature blood cells, rather than mature ones. Acute lymphocytic leukemia refers to the white blood cells, which are called lymphocytes. Acute lymphocytic leukemia is also known as acute childhood leukemia. Acute lymphocytic leukemia is the most frequent type of cancer in children, and treatments result in a good chance for a cure.

Adenocarcinoma

Practically all adenocarcinomas develop from adenomas. Generally, the bigger the adenoma, the more probable it is to become cancerous. By the time colorectal cancer is diagnosed, it has often been growing for several years, first as a non-cancerous polyp (adenoma) and later as cancer.
