I had my acoustic neuroma surgery almost 4 years ago. I have now been diagnosed with mgus. I was just curious if any other patients have had the same situation. Thank you Paul Wasserman

Paul, Monoclonal Gammopathy of Undetermined Significance or MGUS appears to be quite prevalent with the chances of getting it depending on age; 3% (>50), 5% (>70) and 7.5% (>85). As you know, an acoustic neuroma is much rarer at about 1 to 2 per 100,000 per year. Even if someone with an AN got MGUS, this would be expected in about 1 in 20 cases. The better search is those that have mgus that also have an AN; this would be more indicative.

My brief search does not show any association between an AN and mgus.

Hope your mgus does not progress to something to be worried about.
