Acoustic neuroma is a benign tumor that occurs in the primary nerve between the brain and the ear. The tumor progresses very slowly and can influence your balance and hearing. In certain cases, if the tumor becomes very large, then it may also impair vital functions of the body.
The symptoms of acoustic neuroma tend to develop when the tumor starts to press on the nerve and its adjoining branches. The symptoms of this disorder are –
You may experience hearing loss on one side which might worsen gradually.
You may have problems in balancing yourself.
A continuous ringing sound in the ears.
If the tumor is large and presses on the nearby nerves, then you may experience numbness of the facial muscles.
In some cases, it may impair the vital functions of the body.
This disorder is caused by a malfunctioning gene. There is no documented reason as to why the gene malfunctions.
The treatment options for this disorder are
Constant Monitoring: These tumors tend to grow very slowly but might spurt in some cases. In order to prevent damage to your body, they need to be monitored on a regular basis. Imaging tests are recommended on a periodic basis to determine the growth of the tumor.
Radiosurgery: Stereotactic radiosurgery is done to treat acoustic neuroma that is small in size. In this surgery, radiation is directed at the tumor without creating any incision. It is done to limit the growth of the tumor and preserve your hearing.
Surgery: The tumor can be removed by using surgical procedures. It involves administering general anesthesia, followed by removing the tumor through an incision on the skull or the inner ear. Surgery is used to remove the tumor and preserve your hearing abilities. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a oncologist and ask a free question.

What are the symptoms of hiv?
The symptoms of hiv vary, depending on the individual and what stage of the disease you are in.
Early stage of hiv: symptoms
Within 2-4 weeks after hiv infection, many, but not all, people experience flu-like symptoms, often described as the worst flu ever. this is called acute retroviral syndrome (ars) or primary hiv infection and it's the body's natural response to the hiv infection.
Symptoms can include:
Fever (this is the most common symptom)
Muscle and joint aches and pains
These symptoms can last anywhere from a few days to several weeks. However, you should not assume you have hiv if you have any of these symptoms. Each of these symptoms can be caused by other illnesses. Conversely, not everyone who is infected with hiv develops ars. Many people who are infected with hiv do not have any symptoms at all for 10 years or more.
You cannot rely on symptoms to know whether you have hiv. The only way to know for sure if you are infected with hiv is to get tested. If you think you have recently been exposed to hiv if you have had oral, vaginal or anal sex without a condom with a known hiv positive person or a partner whose hiv status you do not know or shared needles to inject drugs get an hiv test. Traditional hiv tests detect hiv antibodies. But during this early stage your body is not yet producing these antibodies. A new hiv test was approved in 2013 that can detect the presence of hiv in your body during this early stage of infection. So no matter where you get tested, it is very important to let your provider know that you may have been recently infected with hiv and you would like to be tested for acute hiv.
It is important to remember that with or without symptoms, you are at particularly high risk of transmitting hiv to your sexual or drug using partners during this time because the levels of hiv in your blood stream are very high. For this reason, it is very important to take steps to reduce your risk of transmission.
The clinical latency stage
After the early stage of hiv infection, the disease moves into a stage called the clinical latency stage. latency means a period where a virus is living or developing in a person without producing symptoms. During the clinical latency stage, people who are infected with hiv experience no hiv-related symptoms, or only mild ones. (this stage is sometimes called asymptomatic hiv infection or chronic hiv infection.
During the clinical latency stage, the hiv virus reproduces at very low levels, although it is still active. If you take antiretroviral therapy(art), you may live with clinical latency for several decades because treatment helps keep the virus in check. (read more about hiv treatment.) for people who are not on art, this clinical latency stage lasts an average of 10 years, but some people may progress through this phase faster.
It is important to remember that people in this symptom-free period are still able to transmit hiv to others even if they are on art, although art greatly reduces the risk of transmission.
Again, the only way to know for sure if you are infected with hiv is to get tested. Tests are available that can detect the virus at this stage.
Progression to aids: symptoms
If you have hiv and you are not taking hiv medication (antiretroviral therapy), eventually the hiv virus will weaken your body's immune system. The onset of symptoms signals the transition from the clinical latency stage to aids (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome).
During this late stage of hiv infection, people infected with hiv may have the following symptoms:
Rapid weight loss
Recurring fever or profuse night sweats
Extreme and unexplained tiredness
Prolonged swelling of the lymph glands in the armpits, groin, or neck
Diarrhea that lasts for more than a week
Sores of the mouth, anus, or genitals
Red, brown, pink, or purplish blotches on or under the skin or inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids
Memory loss, depression, and other neurologic disorders.
Each of these symptoms can be related to other illnesses. So, as noted above, the only way to know for sure if you are infected with hiv is to get tested.
Many of the severe symptoms and illnesses of hiv disease come from the opportunistic infections that occur because your body's immune system has been damaged.
