    Acoustic neuromas are typically very slow-growing, benign tumors. Some people get magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) once a year and the tumor doesn't change in size, so there are tumors that don't grow. However, there are other tumors that can grow quite quickly. Typically, acoustic neuromas grow 1-2 mm a year.
