Hearing tests: Almost all acoustic neuromas are associated with hearing loss, but other neurological signs may be found on exam, including problems with gait, facial sensation, and double vision. Diagnosis can be confirmed, or excluded, by careful MRI films of the base of the brain.

Neurosurgery 16 years experience
Cranial nerve tumor: This is a tumor which occurs on one of the nerves which exit the brainstem within the skull. The treatment is determined by the size of the tumor and the symptoms it is causing. Treatment options are conservative management (watching with serial mris), surgical removal or radiosurgery (radiation therapy). Small, asymptomatic acoustic tumors are often observed.
