Discussion of treatments for Neurofibromatosis:
Treatments for both NF1 and NF2 are presently aimed at
controlling symptoms. Surgery can help some NF1 bone malformations and
remove painful or disfiguring tumors; however, there is a chance that the
tumors may grow back and in greater numbers. In the rare instances when
tumors become malignant (3 to 5 percent of all cases), treatment may
include surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. For NF2, improved diagnostic
technologies, such as MRI, can reveal tumors as small as a few millimeters
in diameter, thus allowing early treatment. Surgery to remove tumors
completely is one option but may result in hearing loss. Other options
include partial removal of tumors, radiation, and if the tumors are not
progressing rapidly, the conservative approach of watchful waiting.
