healthydoc :

Hello and thank you for your question.

healthydoc :

You need to contact neurosurgeon to get surgically removed.

healthydoc :

Acoustic neuroma is a noncancerous and usually slow-growing tumor that develops on the main nerve leading from your inner ear to your brain. Because branches of this nerve directly influence your balance and hearing, pressure from an acoustic neuroma can cause hearing loss, ringing in your ear and unsteadiness.

healthydoc :

Your doctor may recommend stereotactic radio surgery.

healthydoc :

Moreover surgical intervention is only recommended if the tumor is giving you symptoms. If you do not have any symptoms than monitoring the growth of tumor would be recommended.

healthydoc :

Your doctor may recommend that you have regular imaging and hearing tests, usually every six to 12 months, to determine whether the tumor is growing and how quickly. If the scans show the tumor is growing or if the tumor causes progressive symptoms or other difficulties, you may need to undergo treatment.
