Prevent the progression of acoustic neuroma symptoms

If you are newly diagnosed with acoustic neuroma, we know you have questions. The symptoms and side effects of the condition can be challenging, and we have the answers you are looking for.

Although acoustic neuromas are non-cancerous tumors, they may cause more severe problems as they grow and push on the brain and other nearby nerves and blood vessels, so it is important to start treatment as soon as possible.

Acoustic neuromas are rare, but the physicians at Akumin have experience treating them with state-of-the-art radiation therapy. Let us help you start your journey to relief today.

Benefits of Radiation Therapy for Acoustic Neuroma

Radiation therapy is a proven treatment option with a low risk of complications


Why Treat Acoustic Neuroma

Early diagnosis and treatment can help preserve hearing and balance function

Acoustic neuroma is a non-cancerous and usually slow-growing tumor that develops on the main (vestibular) nerve leading from your inner ear to your brain. Acoustic neuromas most commonly arise from Schwann cells, which produce insulation for the vestibular nerve. Therefore, these tumors are often called or known as vestibular schwannomas.

Acoustic neuromas do not spread (metastasize) to other parts of the body. The brain is not invaded by the acoustic tumor, but the tumor pushes on the brain as it enlarges. In most cases, these tumors grow slowly over a period of years, but sometimes the rate of growth is more rapid.

Typical symptoms include hearing loss or deafness, pressure in the inner ear, impaired sense of balance and ability to walk, as well as vertigo with associated nausea and vomiting. Many patients report tinnitus, or ringing in the ear. Acoustic neuromas can also affect the facial area, but are usually discovered before they cause facial symptoms. However, if they are large or impact one of the facial nerves, they can cause numbness, tingling, or even paralysis.
