Acoustic Neuroma (also known as Vestibular Schwannoma), is a benign slow-growing tumor that develops from the vestibular nerve that travels from the inner ear to the brain. An acoustic neuroma can cause hearing loss, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), and loss of balance..

 

More symptoms can arise as the tumor enlarges and places pressure on the adjacent nerves. However, symptom severity is not always a direct reflection of tumor size: it is possible for even a small tumor to cause severe symptoms.
