I was diagnosed with possible minieres disease. However the doctor wants me to go for a mri, what are my chances of having a tumor in my inner ear?

In brief: Fairly rare

The incidence of acoustic neuroma is fairly rare, but not a bad idea for new onset unilateral tinnitus and vertigo to evaluate for possible acoustic neuroma.

In brief: Very small

Whenever there is unilateral or one sided ear symptoms we always consider the possibility of a benign growth affecting the hearing nerve.
These growths are very rare compared to menieres syndrome.
