Vestibular schwannoma

Updated: 2017-06-13


A vestibular schwannoma usually grows slowly or not at all. However, in a few cases, it may grow rapidly and become large enough to press against the brain and interfere with vital functions.


Pressure from the tumor can cause hearing loss, ringing in the ear, and unsteadiness.


The tumor may just require monitoring. When treatment is needed, it may include radiation or surgical removal.
