Conditions Treated by CyberKnife

Acoustic Neuroma

A benign, slow-growing tumor type, acoustic neuromas affect the seventh and eighth cranial nerves in a part of the brain known as the cerebellar-pontine angle, or CPA. The eighth cranial nerve has two parts – the cochlear nerve that transmits sound between the inner ear and the brainstem, and the vestibular nerve that helps provide balance. Acoustic neuromas most commonly arise from “Schwann cells”, which produce insulation for the vestibular nerve. Therefore, these tumors are often called vestibular schwannomas. Acoustic neuromas are benign tumors that do not form metastases (secondary tumors) and therefore do not affect any other organs and system.
