  • Acoustic Neuroma or Vestibular Shwannomas


Vestibular schwannomas, or acoustic neuromas, typically present with symptoms such as hearing loss, ringing in the ear (tinnitus), imbalance, dizziness, vertigo, facial numbness or weakness, and headaches.

Most Common Types

Vestibular schwannomas, the most common intracranial tumors, are categorised into three types based on their growth pattern: intracanalicular, intrameatal, and extrameatal. These classifications depend on the tumor's location within the internal auditory canal, cerebellopontine angle, or beyond, influencing treatment decisions and outcomes.

Treatment for Vestibular Schwannomas

Radiotherapy treatments for vestibular schwannomas, such as stereotactic radiosurgery (e.g., Gamma Knife or CyberKnife) and fractionated stereotactic radiotherapy (FSRT), aim to reduce tumor size or control growth while preserving neurological function. Other techniques like intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) and proton therapy are also utilized. Treatment choice depends on factors like tumor size and location, with regular follow-up evaluations to monitor response and manage side effects.
