Basically Schwannoma is kind of a benign tumour that happens under the nerves. It is also called neurilemmoma, neuroma and neurilemoma. These tumours stay on the outside of the nerves and may externally emerge as a bony structure. These are a very slowly growing form of tumours and because they are benign, they usually don't have to many symptoms also. In some cases, it can affect your facial nerves.
HOW IS SCHWANNOMA DIAGNOSED?
Doctor tests one's reflexes, muscle strength and one's ability to feel sensations on the skin. One may need an X-ray, CT or MRI scans. One may also need a biopsy to determine whether the tumor is cancerous.
HOW IS SCHWANNOMA TREATED?
