Acoustic neuromas are benign brain tumours, which mean that they are a non-cancerous growth that develops in the brain. Acoustic neuromas develop slowly over a number of years and eventually cause issues with a persons hearing and balance. Acoustic neuromas are monitored to determine if they begin to grow too large at which point surgery and/or radiosurgery are likely to be performed. It is possible for acoustic neuromas to return after treatment.
