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.
