The British Acoustic Neuroma Association (BANA) is a voluntary organization in the United Kingdom that is dedicated to promoting the exchange of mutual support and information among individuals affected by acoustic neuroma. Acoustic neuroma, a benign tumor of one or two of the eighth cranial nerves (auditory or vestibulocochlear nerves), usually develops within the auditory canal. The cranial nerves are the 12 nerve pairs that arise from the brain. Associated symptoms, which may vary depending upon the size and location of the tumor, may include single-sided progressive hearing loss, balance difficulties, a sensation of ringing in the ear, and facial numbness or pain. The British Acoustic Neuroma Association was established in 1993 and currently has approximately 17 chapters. The association is committed to providing understandable information about acoustic neuroma to affected individuals and family members, and encouraging and supporting a network of local groups. In addition, it is dedicated to promoting research and publishing the results of such research concerning medical, surgical, and other procedures that may help prevent or treat acoustic neuroma or assist in the rehabilitation of patients following treatment.
