Acoustic Neuroma Symptoms:
Acoustic neuromas are very rare and usually not life-threatening. In certain cases, the tumor may grow large enough to press against the brain. However, usually acoustic neuromas are not life threatening but can cause symptoms that may get worse over time. These include:
• Hearing loss in one ear
• Ringing (tinnitus) in the affected ear
• Loss of balance
Typically, an MRI is used to diagnose acoustic neuromas. Some patients may require additional tests, like a hearing test.
