Acoustic neuroma

Specialty of Otolaryngology / ENT

An acoustic neuroma is a benign tumour that forms on the nerve connecting the inner ear to the brain. Despite being a benign tumour, it can become aggressive if not caught at the early stages, growing in size and compressing neural structures. Symptoms usually manifest as a ringing in the ears, and a gradual loss of hearing. In extreme cases auditory neuroma can cause complete hearing loss in the affected ear. In most cases, it must be surgically removed.
