Neuroma- benign tumor emanating from the sheath of nerve trunks.
Most often found in the auditory nerve. Neurinoma of the skin is usually located on the limbs, painful. When acoustic neuroma noises appear in the ear, hearing loss until complete deafness; the further development of neuromas occur dizziness and weakness of facial muscles, eyes and trembling, headache, and a number of other symptoms associated with increased intracranial pressure.
It is treated the same way as brain tumors.
When intracranial hypertension:
For tumors located on the surface and deep in the hemispheres, most often - osteoplastic trepanation. In the formation of the posterior cranial fossa - resection trepanation. If it is impossible to completely remove the tumor, it is desirable to have its most extensive resection possible.
Comprehensive treatment (radiation and chemotherapy) is used in the case of an immature (malignant) tumor and with the impossibility of radical removal.
A terrible complication - insertion - displacement and hernial protrusion of the brain through rigid intracranial formations (sickle, swelling of the cerebellum, large occipital foramen) with depletion of protective mechanisms and the continuing increase in the size of the tumor.
