2. What are the Symptoms of an Acoustic Neuroma?

There are a wide variety of symptoms of acoustic neuroma. These can appear suddenly or take years to develop. People with this type of tumor may experience hearing loss or ringing in one or both ears. Vertigo, loss of balance, and facial numbness affect some individuals. In rare cases, acoustic neuromas can lead to life-threatening pressure on the brainstem. If you notice any of these symptoms, it is important to speak to a doctor.
