If an acoustic neuroma is strongly suspected then magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is usually performed. The MRI is a very accurate evaluation that is able to detect nearly 100% of acoustic neuromas
The mean age of onset of acoustic neuroma in NF2 is 31 years of age versus 50 years of age for sporadic acoustic neuromas.
The nerve leading from the inner ear to the brain

should be considered in someone under the age of 40 who has a unilateral acoustic neuroma. Someone with a unilateral acoustic neuroma and other family members diagnosed with NF2 probably is affected with NF2
many small beams of radiation are aimed directly at the acoustic neuroma. The radiation is administered in a single large dose, under local anesthetic and is performed on an outpatient basis
As the tumors keep on growing a young person who develops acoustic neuroma will almost always eventually develop symptoms from it.
Acoustic Neuroma is a brain disease in which certain parts of the brain degrade resulting in deafness. There are currently no treatments for this disease other than surgery.
can result in headaches, walking difficulties (gait ataxia) and involuntary shaking movements of the muscles (tremors ). In rare cases when an acoustic neuroma remains undiagnosed and untreated it can cause nausea
