About Acoustic Neuroma

ABOUT THE DISEASE

CAUSES

In most cases, the cause is unknown. However, some acoustic neuromas are associated with the genetic disorder neurofibromatosis type 2.

SYMPTOMS

Since the growth of these tumors is very slow, generally no symptoms are observed till the age of 30 +

If large in size, following symptoms may occur:

  • • Hearing loss- usually develops gradually and affects one ear.
  • • Tinnitus or ringing in the ears.
  • • Vertigo or loss of balance or dizziness.
  • • Facial numbness, tingling or pain.

DIAGNOSIS

- Physical examination
- Hearing test

TREATMENT METHODS

These tumours do not spread to distant parts of the body, however need to be taken care of once they start affecting the surrounding nerves. Treatment is usually with surgery, but radiotherapy can also be used.

Stereotactic radiosurgery is the preferred option for treatment.
