Treatments for Schwannoma (Neurilemoma) in Children

The exact treatment for schwannoma may vary from child to child, depending on :

  • your child's age, overall health, and medical history
  • extent of the disease
  • your child's tolerance for specific procedures, or therapies
  • how your child's physician expects the disease may progress
  • your opinion or preference

Surgery to separate and remove the tumor from the nerve is usually the treatment of choice for schwannomas. Fortunately, this condition is curable and should not recur.
