Symptoms of Acoustic Neuroma (Vestibular Schwannoma)
Each person experiences symptoms differently. It is possible that these symptoms will develop gradually or go unnoticed for years, because these tumors usually grow quite slowly. On the other hand, a large tumor may cause any or all of these symptoms.
The most common symptoms are:
Hearing loss and/or ringing in one ear.
Other symptoms may include:
Numbness or weakness on the face, or a twitch
Headache, confusion, difficulty swallowing, tingling when the neck is bent
Clinical trials evaluate new approaches, devices, or medications in the treatment of acoustic neuromas. Ask your doctor or clinical trials coordinator about available trials that may be additional options for your care.
To learn more about the clinical trials we offer, contact Maria Coburn at 650-736-9551.
Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
