The most common type of brain tumor is the acoustic neuroma, with nearly 3,000 new patients diagnosed with this condition each year in the U.S. Although acoustic neuroma is not cancerous, it can be life threatening if it grows large enough to press on the brain stem. An acoustic neuroma is notorious for causing hearing loss and other ear problems due to its location, but it can also cause facial nerve palsy and paralysis.

An acoustic neuroma normally grows on the eighth cranial nerve that is located between the brain stem and the ear. This nerve carries signals to the brain that impact hearing and balance. While vertigo and hearing loss are common with acoustic neuroma due to the nerve it affects, it also can impact facial nerves. If the tumor grows larger, it can press on nerves that affect facial movement, or the facial nerve can be impacted during removal of an acoustic neuroma and lead to facial palsy. If this occurs, surgical intervention may be indicated to facilitate facial reanimation.

I haven't the opportunity to meet the doctor yet, I have an appointment. I was referred by an ENT doctor in NJ, Dr. Douglas Leventhal, nice, young, excellent bed manners. Unfortunately he does not reconstruction nasal perforation, but he was very interested in helping me, and he referred me to a colleague in NY, and asked me wait a call from them, otherwise to call him back if they didn't contact me. Thanks GOD, they are very efficient and received, today two calls , I finally got to talk to Evelyn, very kind, and patient, gave me the appointment, I hope that my present health problem due to bad medical practice years ago, Dr. Rossenberg, can reconstruct my septum. I thank you from deep of my heart.
