Hi Lesia, Al though I can't give you any advice, I can share a similar problem. My AN was diagnosed in December and my surgeon told me to wait and have another MRI to see if it had grown. Because of my age, he feels that I can live the rest of my life without any problems without surgery as long as it does't grow. I have lost the hearing in my right ear which prompted the discovery of the AN. My next MRI and doctors appt. is scheduled for mid July. Have you made any decisions? I'll let you know the results and the surgeons conclusions.
