This tumour is not fatal.
I developed a ringing in my left ear which lead to an MRI being done. My general physician told me just over a week ago that a large tumour was detected and he was attempting to connect with the ear/nose/throat specialist who ordered my MRI. Hearing this, I was in shock. He did not elaborate. I didn't tell my wife for two days as I wanted to delicately get the timing right, if that's even possible. Once I informed her, we assumed the worst thinking this tumour was cancerous and would lead to my demise. The following four days prior to seeing the specialist were terrible, but it did bring my wife and I closer together. I've since learned this type of tumour is being detected much more often and is not the concern I initially thought it was. https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/health/conditions-and-diseases/brain-tumor/vestibular-schwannoma
