Schwannoma, also known as a neuroma, is a slow-growing, non-cancerous tumor of the tissue that covers the nerves. These tumors develop from a type of cell called a Schwann cell. Schwannoma can develop from any nerve in the body, although they most often develop in certain nerves located in the head, neck and spine.
