A type of benign brain tumor that begins in the Schwann cells, which produce the myelin that protects the acoustic nerve - the nerve of hearing.
- (Source - Diseases Database)
Acoustic neuroma is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of
Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health
(NIH). This means that Acoustic neuroma, or a subtype of Acoustic neuroma,
affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.
