Acoustic Neuroma or Vestibular Schwannoma

Acoustic Neuroma or Vestibular Schwannoma is a benign tumor that develops on the nerve that connects ear to the brain. Its a non cancerous tumor that develops on the main vestibular never leading from ear to brain. Although they do not actually penetrate the brain, they can push on it as they grow. Larger tumors can press on nearby cranial nerves that control the muscles of facial expression and sensation. If tumors become large enough & start pressurizing the brain stem or cerebellum, they can be deadly. The first symptom is usually gradual loss of hearing in one ear, ringing in the ear or a feeling of fullness in the ear. It may also cause sudden hearing loss, although less seen and likely. Some other symptoms associated with Acoustic Neuroma or  Vestibular Schwannoma are –
  • Problems with balance
  • Vertigo (feeling like the world is spinning)
  • Facial numbness and tingling, which may be constant or come and go
  • Facial weakness
  • Taste changes
  • Difficulty swallowing and hoarseness
  • Headaches
  • Clumsiness or unsteadiness
  • Confusion

Complications

An acoustic neuroma may cause a variety of permanent complications, including:
  • Hearing loss
  • Facial numbness and weakness
  • Difficulties with balance
  • Ringing in the ear
Large tumors may press on your brain stem, preventing the normal flow of fluid between your brain and spinal cord (cerebrospinal fluid). In this case, fluid can build up in your head (hydrocephalus), increasing the pressure inside your skull.
