Curing Vestibular Schwannoma
Diagnosing vestibular schwannoma early is the key to preventing serious consequences associated with such a tumor. Once doctors have made a diagnosis, treatment options for the tumor may include:
- Surgical removal (see Vestibular Schwannoma Surgery)
- Watchful waiting.
The doctor can describe the options available for treating your condition and the expected results of each. You and your doctor can work together to develop a plan that meets your medical needs and personal values. Choosing the most appropriate form of treatment is a decision that ideally involves both you and your healthcare team.
