In brief: Several things

As acoustic neuromas grow they typically cause hearing loss and tinnitus.
They may also produce balance problems. If they get very large they may cause facial nerve paralysis or hydrocephalus which is too much fluid pressure in your head.Fortunately, if it is closely monitored, most of the more serious complications may be avoided by surgical removal or radiation treatment.

In brief: Hearing and balance

The area where this grows is small, so hearing and balance can be affected.
Speak with your doctor as well as this is found on ct or MRI ususally.
