Auditory Tumor; Neuroma, Acoustic; Vestibular Schwannoma and Neurofibromatosis
An acoustic neuroma is a noncancerous (benign) tumor of the acoustic nerve, which carries sound from the inner ear to the brain. The exact cause usually isn't known. But acoustic neuromas are often associated with neurofibromatosis 2, an inherited disorder characterized by tumors of the cranial and spinal nerves. Acoustic neuromas are one of the most common types of brain tumors.
Dizziness (Latin: "Vertigo") is the sensation of instability. The term is fairly vague, and can include a number of more specific conditions, ranging from harmless to life-threatening. One of the most common causes of dizziness is rapid spinning; this cause lent its name to the baseball pitcher Dizzy Dean, whose windup while throwing the ball caused him to spin completely around.
