An acoustic neuroma or vestibular schwannoma is a slow growing and noncancerous tumor that originates from the Schwann cells of the vestibular nerve (8th cranial nerve). Since the vestibular nerve influences the hearing and balance, pressure from the acoustic neuroma can result in many symptoms.   Schwannomas are relatively common benign skull base tumors that arise from the nerve sheath (covering) of cranial nerves along-side the cerebellum and brainstem. The two most common are the vestibular schwannoma (aka acoustic neuroma) of the 8th cranial nerve and the trigeminal schwannoma of the 5th cranial nerve. Peripheral nerve tumors affect nerves by growing within them (intraneural tumors) or by pressing against them (extraneural tumors). Most are benign. Different types of benign peripheral nerve tumors include: Schwannoma. The most common benign peripheral nerve tumor in adults, a . Additional Physical Format: Online version: Pool, J.

They account for 6% of all intracranial tumors [37]. The natural history of acoustic neuromas, like that of . Acoustic Neuroma () Definition (MEDLINEPLUS) An acoustic neuroma is a benign tumor that develops on the nerve that connects the ear to the brain. The tumor usually grows slowly. As it grows, it presses against the hearing and balance nerves. An acoustic neuroma — also known as vestibular schwannoma or neurilemmoma — is a noncancerous (benign) tumor on the eighth cranial nerve, the vestibulocochlear nerve. This nerve leads from the brainstem to the ear and is involved in hearing and maintaining balance.   Acoustic neuromas are tumors that develop on the main nerve leading from the inner ear to the brain. This nerve influences balance and hearing. This nerve influences balance and hearing. Pressure from an acoustic neuroma can cause hearing loss, ringing in the ear and unsteadiness, occasionally also interfering with brain functioning.

Acoustic neuromas, also known as vestibular schwannomas, are benign tumors that arise from the cochleovestibular (hearing and balance) nerve. Over 5, of these tumors are diagnosed in the United States per year. These tumors are slow growing and begin . Best opticoacoustic nerve atrophy dementia specialist in Parvati, Pune.

The cerebellum, a part of the brain located above the brain stem, falls back out of the way, and surgeons remove the bone over the internal auditory canal to fully access the tumor. The surgeons can view the facial nerve, the hearing nerve, and the brainstem. If removing the entire tumor could damage nerves or brain tissue, the doctor may leave. Acoustic neuromas are benign fibrous growths that arise from the balance nerve, also called the eighth cranial nerve or vestibulocochlear nerve. (Figure A) These tumors are non-malignant, meaning that they do not spread or metastasize to other parts of the body.
