Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Well, those are definitely two possible causes, the tumor being what's called an acoustic neuroma. But with that information that you already had, what more information do you need?

Well I'm confussed a MRI cannot confirm it why do I need a ct now ? But if had a tumor id have other symptoms right?

Expert:  Dr. Chip replied 2 years ago.
Is the possible tumor in your ear or in your brain? Were you told why the ct was necessary?
