In brief: Hearing, face weak

Acoustic neuromas- also called vestibular schwannoma are benign growths on the 8th cranial nerve.
Depending on the location and size, they can cause hearing loss and facial weakness. Some people are permanently cured with minimal difficulty. Some people develop facial paralysis along with hearing loss in the ear connected to the tumor. Hope your child does well.
