Hi im Kate, 30 years old
I found out in the beginning of December that I have a small acoustic neuroma in my left auditory canal.
I have constant tinnitus.
I have been to two specialists, the first said oh it's benign just leave it 5-15 years.
The seconds said radiation therapy.
I said no radiation as Im exposed to radiation daily in my job as a vet.
Seems like human medicis dont quite get it
It's so frustrating, when I told them all I prefer surgical option they all looked at me like I was insane, but really isn't removing it when it is small better than when it is big and causing more problems?!?!?
Or am I the only person to think like this??
I had my hearing tested today and it is patheticly poor in my left ear...
I hate not having control over this....
Cancer Council NSW would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which we live and work.We would also like to pay respect to elders past and present and extend that respect to all other Aboriginal people.
