Brain Cancer

  • A Brain cancer is a non-cancerous tumor that develops on the nerve that connects the ear to the brain. The tumor usually grows slowly. As it grows, it presses against the hearing and balance nerves.
  • At first, you may have no symptoms or mild symptoms. They can include loss of hearing on one side, ringing in ears, dizziness and balance problems.
  • The tumor can also eventually cause numbness or paralysis of the face. If it grows large enough, it can press against the brain, becoming life-threatening.
  • Brain cancer can be difficult to diagnose, because the symptoms are similar to those of middle ear problems. Ear examination, hearing tests, and scans can reveal it.
