Acoustic Neuroma Diagnosis

Hearing loss may be discovered during routine hearing tests. If this happens, a type of hearing test called an audiogram should be done to evaluate the hearing in both ears.

If you have symptoms that may signal acoustic neuroma, your doctor will examine you and ask you questions about your health.

Acoustic neuromas are diagnosed with MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans.
