I got diagnosed with acoustic neuroma January 2016.
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. At first, you may have no symptoms or mild symptoms. They can include
Loss of hearing on one side
Ringing in ears
Dizziness and balance problems
The tumor can also eventually cause numbness or paralysis of the face. If it grows large enough, it can press against the brain, becoming life-threatening. If the tumors affect both hearing nerves, it is often because of a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis.____________________________________________________________________________
