It will take 6-7 weeks for completion of radiotherapy. Chemotherapy is given for tumors above 4cm. There are bright chances of cure as it has been detected at an early stage.

Experiencing Dizziness? It Could Be A Sign Of Acoustic Neuroma

Experiencing Dizziness? It Could Be A Sign Of Acoustic Neuroma

Acoustic neuromas are tumors that develop on the nerves connecting the ear to the brain. Being non-cancerous in nature, they do not spread to other parts of the body. However, they are characterized by symptoms such as gradual or sudden hearing loss, more pronounced with either of the ears, a ringing sensation in the affected ear, weakness, facial numbness and dizziness.

Causes:

Acoustic neuroma can be of two types: one is sporadic in nature and the other is associated with a condition known as neurofibromatosis type II (NF2). NF2 is basically an inherited disorder identified by benign growth in the nervous system. NF2 being a rare disorder, makes the sporadic type the dominant one. Although the causes behind this type of neuroma are still unknown, long term exposure to radiations, especially around the neck and the head, could be one of the most important triggering factors.

Treatments:

Once the diagnosis is done, treatments for acoustic neuroma depend on the growth and size of the tumor.

  1. Diagnosis with the help of monitoring: Small tumors exhibiting no such symptom or slow signs of growth need to be monitored with the use of hearing tests and regular imaging. In case, the MRI scans are able to trace any sort of development on the part of the tumor or if the tumor poses subsequent difficulties, opting for treatment becomes the need of the hour.

  2. Stereotactic Radiosurgery: Also known as Gamma Knife, radiosurgery is a treatment method wherein controlled radiations are used to treat tumors, thus doing away with the need of making any incision.

  3. Surgical Removal: Surgery performed under general anesthesia is directed towards removing the tumor; that helps to preserve the facial nerve and thus inhibit facial paralysis and hearing loss. The tumor is usually removed either through the ear or through the skull. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

I have been getting inflamed tonsils for the past 2 years. I am planning to get the operation done. How much possibility there is of getting it back? and for how much time would I be away from it? and yes I am 23 years old male and also would it be okay to get the treatment done from a clinic instead of an hospital?

If you are having chronic throat problem then surgery is a better option that will remove the nidus of infection but you have to take postop precautions. Do betadine gargles twice a day till you get your operation done.

My husband is suffering from sinus. But no specific medicine he had ever taken. Starting from blocked nose to pain around eyes and nose to fever. Then doc prescribes antibiotics and paracetamol. Again it shoots up in 15 days. With experience I am saying if by any means he is able to stop at first step that is blocked nose things does not worsen. So any Over the counter medicine not spray as he does not like it. U may suggest which can be taken for stop s or blocked nose.

Please start Homeopathy for your husband as it can remove the recurring tendencies. It can be given after a detailed consultation so that suitable constitutional remedy can be started. You can contact me for a private consultation. Let him also learn yoga and adapt a healthy lifestyle which can be beneficial to remove the chronic tendency.

Easiest thing will be to loose weight. And sleep on the sides. If that doesn't help or it is difficult to loose weight meet a chest specialist.

Hi , I am going to undergo a tonsillectomy. Do I need to be afraid of that operation. Is that so painful.

It would be done under proper anaesthesia so you will not feel any pain during the procedure. Post operatively you need to have cold things like ice cream for better hemostasis and healing.
