Schwannoma Treatment in Orange County
A schwannoma is a tumor of the tissue that covers the nerves, called the nerve sheath. This type of tumor, which is often benign or non-cancerous, develops from the Schwann cell, which gives it its name. Schwannoma can occur in any nerve in the body, although it often develops in nerves that have Schwann cells including cranial nerves, also along the nerves that are involved with flexing in the upper and lower extremities.
