Benefits of attending a support group include communicating in a nurturing, non-judgmental environment
with others who have shared a common acoustic neuroma experience; sharing information on dealing with specific problems,
overcoming handicaps and reassuring others that better times lie ahead; educating and informing each other about the latest
acoustic neuroma topics of interest; and providing emotional support to all patients, both pre- and post-treatment. This helps
in reducing the isolation and loneliness that many acoustic neuroma patients feel.
