Acoustic Neuroma

The acoustic nerve, or alternatively known as the "vestibular nerve," is located in the ear area, and its physiological function involves hearing and balance. It is known as a benign inflammation affecting that nerve. It is classified among the Schwann cell tumors responsible for preserving nerve cells. Acoustic neuroma consists of a single bundle growing inside the nerve, characterized by slow growth. Sometimes it may not grow and remains asymptomatic, according to some medical studies conducted. Treatment options vary, whether through periodic monitoring, taking prescribed medications, or surgery.
