Just wanted to share my very positive experience with Schwannoma.

I have had very serious symptoms with my body for almost 9 years. Just late last year my physio found as she lifted my right arm a huge lump.

Well straight away I went to investigate. I had the operation just this late January and the whole thing was quite a surprise to myself and also the surgeon.

It was a schwannoma in thickness of 7cm wide 6cm and long 6cm it was attached to a main artery and also had nerves tangled around it.

It was also benign. Since the Operation I feel like I have been re-born. All my symptoms that I had experienced are gone and even to say that my blood pressure has dropped dramaticaly.

They seem to think that it had been there for a long time growing but couldnt say how long.

All I can say if you have a Schwannoma please get it looked at. It is all worth it.
