Ayurvedic Treatment for Neuroma / Vestibular Schwannoma - Symptoms, Causes & Herbal Remedies

A vestibular schwannoma is usually a slow-growing tumor (benign) in nature that develops from the nerves responsible for balance in the inner ear. This type of tumor is formed from the over-production of Schwann cells (the cells that normally wrap around the nerve fibres like the skin of an onion that normally wrap around nerve fibres to support and insulate the nerves). As neuroma grows, it affects the hearing, usually causes unilateral (one-sided) or asymmetric hearing loss. Rarely, it may grow rapidly and become large enough to press against the brain and interfere with vital functions.


  • Hearing loss, which is gradual but in some cases, it may be sudden and occurs only one side or more pronounced on one side.
  • Dizziness (Vertigo)
  • Loss of balance or unsteadiness
  • Ringing (tinnitus) in the affected ear.
  • facial numbness


In most of the cases of neuroma, there is no identifiable cause. Some researchers believe that the cause of vestibular schwannoma appears to be a malfunctioning gene on chromosome no. 22. In normal cases, this gene produces a tumor suppressor protein that helps to control the growth of Schwann cells covering the nerves.


This can cause a variety of complications including:

  • Facial numbness and weakness
  • Difficulties with balance
  • Ringing in the ear
  • Hearing loss
  • Large tumors may press on the brain stem thus preventing the normal flow of fluid between the brain and spinal cord (cerebrospinal fluid). In such case, fluid can build up in the head increasing the pressure on the skull.


Vestibular schwannoma is often difficult to diagnose in the early stages because signs and symptoms may be subtle and develop gradually over time and the common symptoms such as hearing loss are also associated with many other inner and middle ear problems.

Doctor may conduct an ear exam and following tests may be prescribed:

  1. Audiometry (Hearing test): In this test, the hear sounds are directed to one ear at a time. The audiologist presents a range of sounds of various tones and ask the patient to indicate each time when the patient hears the sound. Each tone is repeated at faint levels to find out when the patient can barely hear.
  2. Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI): It is the preferred imaging test to confirm the presence of neuroma because it can detect tumors as small as 1 to 2 millimetres in diameter.


Modern treatment may vary depending on the size and growth of the neuroma. It includes monitoring, surgery or radiation therapy causing severe side effects.
