Brain tumors are diseases in which cancer (malignant) cells begin to grow in the tissues of the brain. The brain controls memory and learning, senses (hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch), and emotion. It also controls other parts of the body, including muscles, organs, and blood vessels.

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.
