Acoustic Neuroma
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Harry
Posted on: September 22, 2000

I recently have discovered that I have an enhancing mass extending the length of the internal auditory canal.It measures approximately 1.3 cm along the length of the canal and measures 6mm in maximal diameter. This of course is causing a significant hearing loss in that ear. I have visited with several ENT specialist and various procedures have been discussed - all of which involve either surgery of some nature. I am skeptical of any and such procedures.

My inquiry to you is - Do you know of a possible Herb that may have a shrieking effect for such a tumor type condition ? I would be anxious to try such an Herb -if there is something - and keep watch through periodic MRI’s for the size enlarging or hopefully the reducing in size of the arachnoid cyst type mass.

Sorry, I don’t know of any herbs that will shrink the neuroma.
