In brief: Microsurgery

The goal of treatment is to preserve neurologic function and cure the tumor. Microsurgery is highly effective.
Facial nerve function can be preserved in ~95 % of patients if the tumor is < than 2cm but in less than 50 % if the tumor is > than 3cm. Radiosurgery is an alternative in tumors < than 3cm with local control achieved in~ 90%. You must see an experienced neurosurgeon in an experienced ctr.

In brief: Surgery.

There are no medicine that cures.
Depending on severity usually surgery is done.
