Sved, it is human nature to jump to the worse possible conclusion when faced with a possible health issue. I know I certainly have. But people lose hearing for a multitude of reasons, most of which have nothing to do with an acoustic neuroma, which is a relatively rare condition. So until you know for sure, don’t borrow trouble. Try to relax and don’t think the worse at this point. You have no other symptoms of an acoustic neuroma, such as dizziness and imbalance. As acoustic neuromas are slow growing benign tumors, even if ignored for a couple of years, it would not be likely that the tumor has grown much even if you do have one. So please don’t worry at this point, especially to the point of giving yourself panic attacks. For the time being, think positive.
