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.
A noncancerous growth that does not invade nearby tissue or spread to other parts of the body.
